Mother not recieving payments
by Jenna Pound
I know I am not a Dad but here is my story and I would like feedback... I was a young mother and the "father" never wanted anything to do with my child. A support order was placed at ONLY $47 per month... He couldn't even pay that. He quit his job and everyting to avoid the payments. It has been 9 years and he still hasn't paid or attempted to contact us. (We don't live that far away, we used to live 2 mins down the steet). Anyways... My son has no idea who he is and another man has raised him since he was 1 year old. My complication is I can't afford to raise him on my own financially and either can the man who has been raising him. I have filed modification orders and such but nothing has actually worked. (RETURN TO SENDER) is all I get when the papers are mailed out! I don't know where he lives either. SO MY QUESTION IS... am I a bad person for filing for child support even though I don't want him to get visitaion even if he for some reason changed his mind and wants to be a part of his life. I don't want to confuse my child and someday I will tell him about his biological father but now is not the time. I don't know what to do. I want my child to have as much as I can give him/her but I don't want a person like his bio father in his life either... DRUG ADDICT and whatever else he is into... That and I know there are good fathers out there. I know many of them who want to be in their childs lives but the mother wont let them. I however gave him plenty of chances and tried to even force him to be a father but it didn't work... ANYONE KNOW WHAT TO DO?
