Can you collect child support if you were not married to child's father?
Jane and Tom were only dating when Jane became pregnant with Tom's child. Since the birth of the child, Jane and Tom are no longer dating. Jane is not able to raise the child on her own without the financial support of Tom. Jane has been contemplating whether she has the legal right to seek support from Tom, though they have never been married. Can Jane get support for her child even though she has never been married to the father of her child?01/05/2007 | Category: Paternity | State: Alabama | #127
Yes, it is possible that Jane can obtain child support through a court order, such as a paternity suit brought against the father of the child.
