I am a 19 year old fahter in which my daughter now almost 2. So if you do the math I had her when I was 17 years old. I had so many problems throughout the relationship between the mother and I, but that never stopped me from loving my daughter. I am trying so hard to get a job and it seems hopeless. I am currently on unemployment making a mere 600 a month. My child support payments are around 302 a month so that leaves me with peanuts and wondering if that is even legal. I don't care, as long as my daughter has a good life and is well taken care of.


For the time being, the outcome looks like I am labeled as a deadbeat father. No job, not allowed visitations, and my only excuse was that I was too young and did not know what I was getting into! As I grew older I realized that I am going to do things right and get back on my feet to be able to see my daughter, and of course make some good money. I believe as time grows so will I and I will be able to make better judgement calls and hopefully choose the correct path in my life. I just wanted to share my story with all to let everyone know that not all dads are deadbeats, they may have just stated off on the wrong path. I am one that is trying to get back on my feet before its too late and child support owns me.

Just bcause you don' pay your support does not mean she can keep you from seeing your daughter ! Child support and visitation is seperate ! Just as she can take you to court for contmpt on child support you can take he in for contempt on interference of visitation! Go see your daughter and always pay what you can no matter how little as long as you pay something and you are trying !And the courts won't hold it against you but if you pay nothing at all then you will be in bad shape ! But the main thing is to see your daughter and be a great loving father that is worth way ore than money ! Trust me she will lov you more for being in her life than how ever much you could ever pay in support!
