peepers does not find this helpful : every state has diff provisions on theses matters
First, may I call your attention to the guidelines for using the comments feature found here: http://www.askmehelpdesk.com/feedbac...ure-24951.html
Your rating of Chuck's post was what we call a revenge reddie. You rated him because he rated you. This is not allowed. While you MAY have experienced some of things there were probably extenuating circumstances that may have made the application of the law different.
Yes, it is true that a father to a child born out of wedlock does not have any rights UNTIL paternity is established. But that's not what you said. You said; "since you were never married he has no legal rights to the children since they were born out of wed lock". The fact is that a father has equal rights to a child the only difference between being born to a marriage or out of wedlock is that the unmarried father has to prove paternity first.
Second, Child support is paid to the custodial parent to be used for the care of the child (or children). Again, you said something different. You said that he will have to help with the "cost of living for you and the kids". He does NOT have to help with the expenses for the mother only for the children. That's why its called child support.
Both of those factors are universal for the US. All states subscribe to a federal guidelines on these issues.
Most states have family or probate courts where one files for custody, visitation and support issues. Local prosecutors are only charges with criminal matters, but I concede its possible that prosecutors might handle this in your area. But I would need to see proof of that.
So that fact is that what you posted was, at best poorly worded so as to be misleading and earned the negative rating. Your revenge response was inappropriate.
