My question involves child support in the State of: California
My son's girlfriend is 5 weeks pregnant and wants to keep the baby despite the wishes of all families involved. I understand we cannot dictate what she does with her body, so want to understand what my son's obligation is and how is that determined? He is in college (financed by us), has no job but wants to do the right thing for his child. How would child support be calculated for someone who is not working? The girlfriend is also in college and works part time only.
Also, am wondering if there is an advantage for the mother to remain single in terms of receiving state aide, health care for the child or other such benefits?
Is there an agency or place that would have information about this subject?
Thanks in advance.
