How do they determine child support if non-custodial parent is unemployed?
I was dating this guy for 6 months, and we were awful for each other. We had nothing in common, he comes from money and I don’t, he’s very socially awkward and kind of stuck up and I’m very outgoing, so we fought alot. needless to say, we broke up after 6 months of dating.. A few weeks later, I found out I was pregnant. I tried to involve him, but he wanted no part in our daughters life. At first I let my pride get in the way and told myself I didn’t need his help in raising her, and I’ve been doing it on my own. However, its very overwhelming financially as a single mom, so I recently swallowed my pride and filed for child support.. The thing is, my ex, who’s 26, doesn’t work. He’s a “trust fund baby”, or atleast thats what I call it…He owns his own home, His parents, a criminal defense lawyer and a interior designer, pay all of his bills, and he uses inheritance money that his grandparents left him to pay for everything else. My question is: do the courts take into account assets, banking/savings accounts, and stocks/bonds when calculating the dollar amount for child support??
Heads up, I don’t wanna hear any gold digger remarks, I wanted him to know our daughter, but he wanted an abortion and even tried to buy me off if I put the baby up for adoption. Now he denies its his kid. I don’t care what people think, I’m only interested in giving my daughter the life she deserves, and why should he be living it up when I spend every single day struggling to make sure my lil girl has food and clothes and money for child care? So be nice, guys!
