I am in a relationship - not married - have 2 kids. We have a house. He works, I am not. I am a full time mom. He moved out six months ago and only gives me 1,200 a month. He makes 10K a year and recently said he will give me 850 a month because he is tired of giving that amount of money. So he said if he files for father paternity, he will not be forced to pay child support and if he had to pay it, he said he would pay $650 per child, which I think is not true. He said because he pays the mortgage, the electric and gas, and water it will end up he will not have to give me anything. So what is true? am I right or is he? Will he be forced to pay child support once he files the papers ? oh he is on the birth certificate for both kids. I am on the deed of the house.my kids do sports activities, which is expensive and the food and clothes add up too. CORRECTION: it is late when I wrote this. I mean 10,000 a MONTH not a year lol. sorry about that.
