Q: Me and my child’s father lived together since our daughter was born until she was 2 and a half. I always paid everythin

He will have to pay child support. He cannot recoup any money from you absent a change of possession of the child. If he is current on his child support, the court will generally alternate the tax exemption between you and him.
