Played by my sons father.

In short, after my sons father threatened me to abort our son two years ago when I got pregnant I forgave him when our son was born and gave him a chance to make things work and give our son a family. I found out two weeks ago that he was cheating on me the entire time since he refused to move in together saying he was saving for a house so I was living with my parents. By the way we are in our mid twenties. I eventually moved out on my own with my son and he never attempted to move in even though I often told him he should. He hardly made time for our son or family saying he was working so much overtime and then resting when he could to buy us a house...

It broke my heart to find out he's been cheating because I made so many sacrifices, have raised our son as a single mom, and forgave him for a lot, only to be cheated on and lied to. He said that I drove him away to not want to make things work but I don't believe that for a second. I feel now that he used me and took advantage the entire time so I wouldn't file for child support. I have already filed for child support and says I'm getting revenge on him and ruining things for our son. I know he's just being selfish now, but has anyone gone through something similar? Any advice as I move forward with raising my son and having to deal with someone so selfish and cruel?

Make sure you also get custody and visitation sorted out. At the moment, there's nothing stopping him taking his child.
Don't worry about what he says about you filing for child support, it's your CHILD'S right to be supported by BOTH parents. Child support is for the child, not the custodial parent.
