We met and I fell pregnant at when I was 18,I was not ready for a child yet,I was scared and confused and a child myself at the time,however he persuaded me to keep the baby and I did. He was supportive through out the pregnancy and even the first few months were wonderful,however we were no longer together. He changed gradually bit by bit,started off with him having to be reminded of child support to him getting jobs and quitting and now it's out of control. I'm 22now and my daughter is 3 and I am not working,I'm studying full towards my 1st bachelors degree and I can't even cope with school because I constantly worry about my daughter. He hasn't brought in child support in 4months,gives me stories all the time.he moved out of his mothers home I don't know where he lives,he never comes to see his daughter or even call like he used to to check up on her,and I'm getting a feeling that he quits his job just so he doesn't pay child support,I don't know what to do as I've spoken to time and yet he doesn't change his ways,and it breaks my heart because my daughter asks about him all the time,please help!

Is your child support court ordered? If it is get them to chase him for it. If it isn't then go to court and get it sorted out.
Unfortunately you can't make someone change and be a parent.
You need to stop trying to get him to change and focus on your daughter. Stop expecting child support, then you won't be disappointed when you don't get it.
