My son is almost four years old. He has never met his father and I have not seen his father since I told him I was pregnant. I have tried to reach out to him, but never got any response. I felt so angry and did want to beg him for him to be involved with my son if he didn't want to be; however, I work full time and I am currently pursuing a BBA full time and I am broke. I am trying my best to one day be able to provide for my child solely, but I expect some financial difficulties in the future that would render his normal way of life and my pursue of my bachelors. Should I go after him for child support? Will they give him custody? My child doesn't know this man! I hardly know this man. Can I just ask for child support and no visitation? I can't determine the better decision. I know that there is no turning back once I open this door. I have also been told recently that there could be some predicaments in his life that require both parental signatures such as leaving the country. I don't know which is the best choice to make. Should I continue to do this on my own and feel safe knowing that I am in control of decisions for my child or feel more financially stable with someone else dictating his influences? Please help!
