His name isn't on the birth certificate. I told him I was pregnant, and he attended one doctor's visit at the beginning of the pregnancy. He knew where I lived and never offered to make contact. He has contacted her and now says he didn't know about her.
The answer to you question is yes, the father can be pursued for back child support. I suggest you contact the Child Support Division of the District Attorney General's office in Blountville.
