  1. First of all, don't always believe it when someone tells you that men always lose in court.
    I would suggest not listening to her legal advice and calling a professional to get their advice.
    It is possible that she could end up being the one paying child support while you continue raising your child and attending school.
    Seek legal help as soon as possible and get the "real" story.
