my son started staying more and more in his dads over the summer, now school is starting again and i got a phone call from his dad ( we have split 14years ago) saying hes staying with him and he wants me to give up all parental rights to him, i am sick to my stomach, so hurt, he proceded to say, I NEED MY RENT PAID!.. this would help to get me some rent paid, and he has my son standing up for him saying poor daddy needs help moneywise...i recieve the benifits for my son but also work 16hours on minimum wage..i cant believe this is happening, i cant sleep or eat and feel so depressed..any advice?...he is 16 so able to make his own mind up...i never recieved any child support from his dad although he has been a good dad 2 him and his brother who is 2 years older...x

hi sarah i do get child support for my son, i am the one who gets him all he needs, clothes, shoes money for his pocket, the money is not the issue for me its the fact that i know why his dad is doing this so that he will be better off financially. He has never paid child support we were never married. thanks..ill have to grin and bear it, hes 16 i cant force him to stay. thanks everyone, and dave
