I want to take my sons father for child support but on paper…

Customer Question
Hi. I want to...

Hi. I want to take my sons father for child support but on paper I make more money and he owns a business and hides his money. I also have the child 95% of the time and he lives in my house where I pay all the bills. His father lives at his parents for free. I don't know what to do

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Pa

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Yes but I cannot continue to see them anymore cause I can't afford it. I took his father for emergency custody back in April because we was under the influence of drugs

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

But now I want support and he thinks that giving me 100 a month it good

Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The father does have a legal obligation to financially support the child. If the child lives with you and you have him 95% of the time, he would need to pay support. If he is hiding money, you can try and hire a third party to do an accounting of his earnings and income both personally and with the business. I have also provided a link below, so you can estimate and get an idea, of what he would have to pay.
