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

  1. Monroe child support office is a joke. They let the non compliance letters sit until a parent calls wanting to know what we are gonna do about getting payments. Then they say he bas made a payment within 30 days we cant take him back to court….really. in my case he has never made a full months payment never! He pays when he wants to. Quit his job works under the table and I have given them all this info. They send non compliance letters to my house. Where he doesnt reside. That office the door is forever rotating. You get one case worker and before you know it it is someone else. They don’t help at all in helping these parents get child support. Its almost like they help the other parent to get away.
