single mom of 18 month old boy, father is threatening he will go for half custody and report me to welfare if i go for child support. My son is my life! I can't let him do this to me! He has no grounds, he's verbally and emotionally abusive, he sends money when he feels like it, he only sees our son a couple of hrs a week, he never offers to see him on the wknds. I have no family to help me. I'm on my own.

He can threaten all he wants, but the law is clear...what is he going to go to welfare for??? Welfare is in existence because of parents like him who won't help. Call his bluff, let him call welfare, record everything, and when welfare shows up, you can let them hear him and in court, he'll lose. you have to do what is right for your child. you don't want your child thinking it's ok to treat others as his "father" treats you.
