He should be paying support. You should have a court order for custody, visitation, and child support, so that you all know what your rights and responsibilities are. It's the best way to protect your kids.

Its entirely up to you. If he does not support your twins by at least diapers, wipes, school care, food, gas to and from, doctors apps .. and when i say all this i mean for the twins .. not money for nails, your girls out lunch or anything along the lines. My daughters father and I have a child support case open because not only do i live out of state but he does not help with basic needs. I have a decent job and she is in daycare ..however its a huge help and it does help with the cost of a rowdy 2 year old. and we are both on the same page with visitation and custody

Well, you are their mother, but the father has rights too. A court order can help you both sort out a visitation schedule for the boys, so that they can spend a fairly equal amount of time w/ both of their parents. You can ask for mediation (some states require you to do mediation before going through court) and work it all out together and if you can not agree then you would go to court.

Your father should be able to help you find out what you need to do in your area... or you can call a lawyer and ask for a bit of advice over the phone.
