More Information:

Husband filed for divorce. I received divorce complaint via certified mail. He included the child we had together, but did not include my child from a previous relationship. He has solely taken on the role of her father since she was 1 1/2 yrs old. we resided together for 11 years. He takes both children during his times for visitation.

The father of your 15 year old child is the man who is responsible for her support. Only children born during a marriage are included in a divorce. At least she has a step-father who cares about her enough to include her in his life with your mutual child.
