Just to incorporate a little background information about the situation: I am 18, and have a 13 year old brother. We live in a single parent home. My mom and dad were never married and never lived together. My dad pays my mom child support. My dad has never paid child support a day since I been living. He was recently forced by the government to start paying child support in Oct 2012. He did not start making payments until Dec 2012.
My father has not paid child support in nearly two months ($265.00/month for two children). Within that time period though he has offered gifts such as paying for my senior dues ($385.00). Since he offered the gift that is way more than the child support payment, is he obligated to pay the child support payment? What happens if he does not pay the payments?
