Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
When you signed off on the support, did you not get anything in writing to evidence and show the oral agreement? Was signing off on the support a condition to this agreement?
Thank you. At this point, you would need to take him back. If there was a previous support order and you signed off in reliance on this agreement and now he is failing to comply, you need to take him back to court. Ideally, the agreement would have been reduced to writing, to avoid this very issue of having to prove it but you can still try and go after him. His obligation to support the child still remains, so you can go back and get support court ordered again.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
