So what are you asking? I guess I'm just trying to clarify. I'd just suggest you follow up the child support payments. There's not really much else you can do.

Whether he sees his child or not on his Sunday has nothing to do with the child support, so I'm not sure why you threw in that one. If he isn't paying, then follow up with it (through whatever agency you apply for it).

I also don't understand why the person you are "seeing" is paying for everything. What are you paying for? A father isn't obligated to pay ALL of a child's expenses anyway, so you should be finding a way to pay for some of it.

Well, yes... his bio father is legally obligated to pay support. He absolutely SHOULD pay, but other than having wages and/or taxes garnished... it's not likely that you can MAKE him pay. It will catch up to him eventually, but when depends on too many factors to guess. Some bio fathers get away w/ it until their child is an adult and only then does the state finally catch up on the case and put the father in jail.

I only think its fair that he pays his child support... I appreciate everything my companion does... But I know he does without for himself to ensure my son has... And I feel bad about it.
