How can a unmarried father put himself on child support?

First, good on you for trying to be responsible. You can contact the mother an work out an agreement between the two of you. If she accepts help from you, put it in writing and document every payment. In the event that she refuses to accept anything, you can contact the Department of Revenue to have them take the support or begin to make payments to a seperate account for the child, so that when given the opportunity you have the funds there to make that contribution. I would adivse that you speak with a local family law attorney to make sure that you would be getting proper credit for any payments made.
