Dickson, TN asked in Child Support for Tennessee

Q: I have child support court with the father of my daughter.

I have been unemployed due too not being able to afford child care and loosing my job 3 months ago. What do I need to prepare for court? He has helped with food and bills but has not spent time consistent time with our child or took on more responsibility when it comes to her custodial care as a parent. I want this to be civil but have never been to court so I’m not sure what I need or what to expect.
