Me and my friend adopted a little boy on California we agree that both were gonna be responsible. Now he have a girl friend and he don't wanna help financially any more, Can I file a child support against him ?
yes. once the child was adopted the child became just as much your child as if the child was naturally born to the two of you. adopting parents are obligated to support their adopted children just as a natural parent is and can be made to pay child support to the other adopting parent.
