I'm assuming you mean a dad that just turns up and visits when it is convenient for him? You get court orders for custody and visitation so that he has set times he can visit.

If you feel his child support should be reviewed, then request a review (not sure where you live, so I can't say what the process is), but he does not need to pay you more than he is ordered to pay you.

You get custody and visitation orders to make it very clear when his visitation is. When you say "he doesn't pay more than child support" do you mean he pays his child support, but that's it, nothing more? Or are you trying to say he doesn't pay child support at all.

You just focus on yourself and your kid and don't waste time thinking/worrying about him. If he's around... he's around. If he's not... he's not. It takes time, but you'll be OK.
