I will try to best answer your question.
As long as you obtain good service of the support action against father the court will proceed with the child's support action even if he is not present. In fact it will be easier if he is not present because he will not be able to refute any testimony you provide. In his absence the court will simply enter a default judgement.
I hope this information and advice is helpful and I wish you the best of luck.
