Can i sue my dad for not paying child support even though my mom never filed for it?

Unless he has a legal obligation to supply child support then he isn't required by law to do it. I agree he should be offering support as he is your father, but you can't sue him.

You stoled my comment. Just kidding. You did say exactly what I would have said though. Hey, didn't I see a comment about tornados & you live in Tulsa? If so, did you see much action last night?

There is an age limit.


You might consider having a conversation with your father about your goals and his assistance.

If it is for education: www.scholarship.com and the http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/

Your mother had her reasons for not applying for Child Support. This may be a good time to talk.

Good Luck

Way to be greedy even though your mom took care of you apparently u think she wasn't a good enough parent and didn't instill the ability or want to get a job n take care of yourself like she did

for 1 my mother told me to look it up and i do have a job, i have tried to get in contact with my father. and the money would be for my mom, brother and me. im 9 months pregnant so parden me if i cant go to work for a little while. if you think my mom is greedy for wanting to be a part of this, then i guess everybody in the world is greedy for wanting child support. trust me my mom was more than good enough. you dont know anything about me or my family so you have know right to jugde and say we are greedy. my father destroyed our lives and beat the hell out of me and my brother and mom when i was 2 months old. when you go through that let me know.

There a programs you can apply for to assist you while you are taking care of your baby. Also, you may discuss with your mom counseling for the family.

Good Luck to you and your family.

If he is so bad and did that stuff to you then just leave him his money and everything out of your life. Oh and you say about being pregnant and not working well the dad will help out rite

Looking for a hand out my biological father didn't have nothing to do with me either and didn't pay child support even after it was filed against him but I agree with several people on here yes he should have and should be willing to help you but go. Get a job stop being like half of America these days and looking for a hand out do it yourself til you actually need help have a little pride and discipline about yourself
