My ex wants to start paying me child support and wants to file himself should I let him file for the support order himself or should I file for the child support myself?

When I filed, they asked a lot of questions my children's father couldn't answer. (How much you spend each month on diapers, wipes, clothes, shoes, food for the baby, ect...) I would do it myself if I were you, just to ensure that you get a sufficient amount each month. Also, I guess they don't do court before they start garnishing the father's wages anymore? I filed back in March and was told not to worry about what numbers I put down because I'd have to redo it right before court, but court never came. Instead, the department of revenue just sent us both letters (8 months later...) saying that his wages are being garnished and I should start receiving support in the next 30 days. So I would start taking tabs of everything you buy for you baby so you're prepared! Best of luck
