First, you need to contact a lawyer. If you can’t afford one, you need to look into a charity that helps young mothers and see what they can provide you. This needs to be sorted out through the courts, I believe.

Secondly, I would argue that he cannot pay only half his child support, because the government decides what he pays. He owes you a LOT of money if he has only been paying half.

I think that a lawyer in your area would let you know your rights, the rights of your husband, the rights of your daughter’s father and new step-mom. I would assume that this would be the best way to sort out this entire situation.

@Emotional:  Hun I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. All we can say is find a lawyer and fight him. If he keeps dropping in and outof her life, he might be just blowing hot air. You are her mother and her Stepmother is a stranger. You tell him only HIS name is going on that paper or no one at all.

I’m sorry you’re going through all of this.  You really need to find a lawyer.  If you cannot afford one, there are a lot of legal aid programs that help people in similar situations.  

As a lawyer, the only advice I feel comfortable giving you is that you should not take legal advice from wedding forums.  You need someone who will meet with you in person and go over all the details, and who knows the laws of/ is licensed to practice in your specific state.

@MissBananaBread:  I second this.  I’m an attorney as well and I would not trust anyone who says they’re an attorney and willing to give you legal advice on a wedding forum.  There are touchy ethical rules involved.
