P. Justin Thrailkill's answer
You are correct, there should be a court order for support. That said, if you are in the middle of a legitimation case, it would be a bad idea to stop paying right now. Talk to an attorney about taking over the legitimation case for you and getting you some support.

P. Justin Thrailkill's answer
You need to speak with an attorney ASAP. If this is a permanency hearing, you should've already been afforded the opportunity to get a court appointed attorney. If you have not, ask for one tomorrow. They will have to determine if you qualify for a court appointed attorney, so they may have to continue the hearing IF you haven't already applied and been denied, or if you haven't refused at an earlier hearing.
