Hi, I may be asking a stupid question but I would appreciate some of your insight.
I’ll try to be brief…
I’m a single mother in college living at home with my parents. I do not work. My son is 16 months old. His father and I have a court order established. We have joint legal custody and he is supposed to be paying child support and providing medical insurance.
Problem is, his father is not paying child support (never has) and is not providing health insurance. I asked him about it (CS & HS) not too long ago and he said something about the high costs of health insurance and “I will continue to look into it.” There’s really no point in asking him about it again because I know I will just receive the same answer.
If I petition the courts to have CS & HS enforced I am not sure what good that is going to do. May rack up court fees (that my parents-not I- will end up paying off) and cause drama.
Should I just go get a job and take care of the health insurance myself? My little sister has already agreed to watch my son while I go to work so there’s no issue with finding a babysitter.
Thank you for your help. God bless
