My question involves child support in the State of: Connecticut
So my situation is really weird, but I know I'm not the first to have this happen to. I was married in NV and I ended up leaving my husband when i was 4 months pregnant, he was caught cheating on more than one occasion so I walked out on him. I ultimately ended up moving to CT because I have family here. Legally we're still married, but that process is taking a while. I had the baby here in CT, she has my last name. I have been raising her with the help of my mom and dad since the day she was born. Her dad has not sent me anything. I filed for child support through the state, but I was curious how long it takes? Her dad is constanty telling me he is going to fight for custody, when he has a really long arrest record and nothing positive to offer to our daughter. She is now 5 months old and I need to get back to work, but I want him to start paying his half. Is there anything I can do to speed up the process or get him to start helping now? He has never met our daughter or anything, he has no intentions on it.
