Q: Living with sons father until I can get my own place however his not supporting any needs of the 2years old. We have lived together in Bronx NY for more than 3 years and are not legally married. He signed the birth certificate. I was told that we have to get a paternity test first and then I have to be living elsewhere in order to file. I just want to do it the painless way possible.
A: You can file the paternity petition now – and then if while the case is pending you physically separate from him, you can proceed on your support case. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
