Unemployed father

Submitted by vionka16 on Thu, 06/27/2013 - 11:44

The father of my child is not working. He has only agreed to pay $200 a month in child support. Daycare alone is $700 a month. After he gets a job he told me he will not compensate for the extra money that he should have been supplying. If I put him on child support I feel like I would get nothing at all because he isn't working and what is 20% of a $0 income. How does back pay work for a father who wasn't working once he actually gets a job? Also, am I wrong for wanting that extra money back once he gets a job?

Thanks
