A current dilemma that many women face is asking for child support when they are no longer with their child's father. For some women, asking for support may be scary, intimidating, or even feel embarrassing. Yet, the reality is that
child support system was created to ensure the daily needs of children across the country are met. If you are a mother who believes that you are entitled to child support payments, it is time to remember that you are your child's protector and advocate. By asking for child support, you are making sure that your child has what he or she needs to thrive.
Sometimes, women do not want to ask for child support payments because they feel they appear "greedy". However, making sure that your child's basic needs are taken care of by both of his parents is not greedy or selfish and absolutely does not appear that way.
