My daughter is 16 months beautiful little girl. I raise her since birth and for now I live at my parent’s home for support problem and goals to achieve as college & to save up for the future. I left the dad at 3 months pregnant, since he wasn’t responsible & I couldn’t see myself with him. Now I found someone after a year of being single. The boyfriend great around her, help out and has put his responsibility as he was the father but he calls himself a friend to my daughter so it make me happy.
Dad, come one’s a week on Sunday’s. Doesn’t support or help out when I ask an extra day so I can have “I time”. I don’t trust him alone either. Since I know him, his an alcoholic, does drug & bad attitude/selfish still. All I get is “It my way or the high way “. He did start paying child support after she was a 1 year and only 40$-80$ every 3-4 week. . I know she needs a father figure in life not sure if a good teacher and I wouldn’t try to push him away. I just need some answers, since for past year, I work & raise her because I love her, plus months I’ve been asking myself question over & over again. In conclusion, Should I go to court? Should he be still supervises? Should I let him see his daughter as a reward as of (no support & no help)? Should I continue living at my parents before I finish college and still save some more money?
