You need to simply file a petition to enforce child support against the father in court. The state NCGS §49-15 says, "after [a judicial] establishment of paternity of an illegitimate child pursuant to G.S. 49-14, the rights, duties, and obligations of the mother and the father so established, with regard to support and custody of the child, shall be the same[.]"
So, you just need to get a court order setting out what the father will pay for - what he owes in past support - and also what he will pay in the future. The clerk in the court has the forms you need. Just go down there, fll them out and file them.
All the best,
First read the court's order - did it say all baby birth pills or justi the ones you had at the time?!? If it said "all" of implied that it referrred to all, then you need only to file a complaint for contempt and get the father back in front of the same judge - father will either pay or the judge will put him in jail - go to court house and get complaint for contempt form.
