Do we have to be divorced before I can file for some kind of child support?

child_support_personQ) My sons father and I have been separated ,not legally, six months after my son was born, he’s two and a half now. Do we have to be divorced before I can file for some kind of support? I need help.

A) The custodial parent doesn’t have to file for divorce before beginning a child support case. If you and your spouse aren’t ready to initiate a divorce yet, the custodial parent may file a complaint or petition with the court to establish a child support order. Your state’s child support enforcement agency or local prosecutor may offer assistance with filing this complaint. Child support is not typically retroactive to the date of separation, so the earlier you file, the more money you can receive. http://info.legalzoom.com/can-child-support-im-not-divorced-yet-23933.html
