A: It really depends on a number of factors, but most importantly whether the state provides any support for the mother or baby (doesn't sound like it does as they both work). Your son, though, should seek some local legal advice about this situation as there may be-as crazy as it sounds-very valid reasons for why he should seek a support order.
