BEYOND DEAD BEAT!!
I was 21 when I had my son. His father left for the army when I was two months pregnant. He was suppose to come back for us but he never did. He changed addresses and phone numbers like he changed his underwear. After my son's birth, I immediately went to the welfare office and was awared TANF (formerly known as AFDC), food stamps, and WIC. He questioned the child's paternity from day one. I told him to have a DNA at his expense. He refused; he stated he knew the child was his and that the OAG was gonna put the support on him any way. He got out of the service. The little support I was getting was usually interupted because he could not keep a job long enough to save his life. And when he did, I only received $24-$46 a week in support. He saw his son for the first time at age 14. At age 15 my son spent three days with his father and he said he talked to his uncles more that he talked to his father. That was the only time he went to stay with his father. Usually the child does not have a good relationship with the father. My child has NO realationship with his father. He has other children that he adores but he does not claim my son, his first born. My son is 18 and a freshmen in college. His father owes me back time support and medical support that he was court ordered to pay but he feels the child is grown and he should not have to pay it. I tried to work with him over the years but enough is enough. We were recently ordered to appear in court but as usual he could not make it. He always find ways and reasons not to appear. This has gone on for years. The only thing he really knows about our son is his name. Althoug he was invited, he never attended any birthday parties. He never came to see him when he was sick with asthma. One year he was admitted to the hospital on Christmas Day. No phone calls, no nothing. He did not check on his son periodically like some fathers do. He did not even come to his middle school graduation and he did not show for his high school graduation in June 2010. Anytime something was going on with our son I would always let him know ahead of time but he never supported our son in anything. He acts like our son doesn't exist. And now since he has been hit with return of medical insurance premiums since 2001, he is questioning his paternity. You would think he would have taken action years ago if he was not sure the child was his. He just doesn't want to do nothing for this child. But his other children....oh he plays the doting father. STINKIN' BITCH!!! HE CAN KISS MY ASS!! We have another court date coming up shortly. Wonder what excuse he's gonna give them for not appearing in court this time. Currently,there is a warrant out for his arrest. Lovely! I hope they hold him until the court date. Otherwise he's gonna pull a no-show again. Rest for sure he has a fight on his hands. He is not gonna get off easy. Talk about dead beat dads, this man is TRIFLIN'!!
