Father is illegal, we are not married and recently broke up. I’m thinking about taking him to court for child support. Can he be deported if we go to court?
There is no connection between immigration and child support courts. The mere act of petitioning for child support will have no effect on the man's immigration status. Should he get deported, that would be the result of a different process which you may not be aware of if it is happening.

Always remember I am not establishing an attorney/client relationship with you here and I am not giving you legal advice for your case. I am only providing an education in the workings of the law using your fact pattern as an example and in no way am I helping you prepare your case for court. Further, I do not know your case.
