Quoting Ethan Jame's Mommy :" I am 17 years old with an 8 month old son ... Friday morning I went and filed for full custody and child ... [snip!] ... out financially with his child .. Excited to say I did it and December 10th we will have court. Let's see what happens ! "
You know if you file for child support and take him to court he HAS to pay or goes to jail? And after two years of not seeing the child or paying child support he forfeits his rights. At least here anyway.
BUT!! Congrats on doing what you thing is best (:
