My son is 3 and his dad moved away and hasn't seen him in 3 months. I am registered with maintenance and haven't seen a penny since March. He called on Father's Day telling my son he is going to come and get him next week and take him camping. (Didn't ask me before making these promises) Anyways, what I would like to know is...

If I go for custody, will I get child support if it's Sole Custody? And if I don't.... is there a certain kind of Custody I should apply for where I still make the major decisions but he has to pay.

I would like to file for some kind of custody next week so any advice would help!

Thanks Moms!

No worries! I'm sure there are some ladies on here who can help with that. Its just with this one, I could have typed out a nice long informative post for you and it would be irrelevant so I thought I'd ask first because I'm lazy, LOL.

It would help if we know where you live Christine. I know where you stand on this one in Australia, but I can't vouch for anywhere else :)
