I am a 17 year old single mom of a 7 month old baby boy. his father isn't sure he is his son but has been giving us child support money anyways, I didn't record the amount each time he gave me money for our son. I feel like it was something I should've recorded on paper before anything. we didn't go to court yet or get a paternity test. I'm ℅100 positive that he is his, idk what to do.

First thing first is a paternity test. Then from there you should contact family law and set up an appointment.

Well in good faith start recording everything he gives you..during your court date they will ask you have you recieved any payments from him and if so how much.

Congratulations on your baby boy! They are such a blessing. Your question about child support doesn't indicate if you have other means of support, such as your parents, but in any case, it's a good thing that this young man is willing to step up and help financially. A paternity test may be the best thing to do right now, since the results could greatly affect your future and that of your son. I'm not a lawyer but I do know there are a lot of legal implications when it comes to this issue. In the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to keep track of financial payments, and would be a fair thing to document this young man's willingness to be a part of your son's life. I hope you'll update us!
