I got out of a domestic violence relationship, we have share custody of our 6 year old but he got residential since I have a 9 yr old(not his kid) with ADHD, ODDX SEPARATION ANXIETY, ASTHMA, DEPRESSION and possible SPD and a 2yr old (not his kid) we agreed on no child support but now he wants to file for it but since I have to take my 9 yr old to psychologist every week at least once every week and one or twice a month with his psychiatry I can't work since no one wants to take care of him... my question is can my ex husband still get me for child support since I don't and can't work? Not that I don't want to but I can't right now... I do see my kid on every visitation I have

If you have custody of your other children and are not getting support, file for it.

Otherwise, yes, you still have the obligation to the 3rd child.

Where I live even unemployed non custodial parents are supposed to pay $50/month in child support.

@shawnn I do understand that and even if I have only $5 dls on my name I give it to him, when he is with me he has all the necessary, food, clothes, a place to sleep, toys not lots of stuff like xboxes, tablets, brand name cloths like at his dad's but my boyfriend makes sure they have the necessary, I get no help from the baby dad of my 9 yr old or either I got it for my 6 yr old when I was the one that had the residential, I am Not trying to be irresponsible just can't afford pay child support since I I'm not working

Regardless of the medical bills for your other children, you still have to support that middle child.

Short answer? Yes, your ex can file, and should. You need to be supporting all of your kids. If they were all living with you, and you were still married, you'd be taking care of them all...so why should it change simply because you aren't in a relationship with the man, and you don't have physical custody?

As far as whether a judgment will happen? No clue. That would be up to judges and caseworkers.
