Most states have a division that collects money from the child's father for you, no charge. If you go to a lawyer and pay for court you'll end up getting little if anything. This way the state takes on the financial obligation and you don't need to. All the benefit with none of the expense. * The grounds for such action must be established before a suit is possible. In most situations this means a child support order must be in force. State social services will not get involved until a support order has been issued by the jurisdictional court. If the issue is child care expenses, then the custodial parent can sue the noncustodial parent if they can prove that their was a verbal agreement that they would share the costs.

Can you get in trouble for giving your baby a different last name from your husbands?

You would not get in criminal trouble for giving your child a different last name from your husband. The law, however, assumes that whatever last name you give the child, if the child was born while you were married (even if separated for years), then your husband is the father of the child. Not too many years ago courts would not even entertain evidence tending to show that someone other than the husband was the father of the child, as the social stigma of illegitimacy was so large as to outweigh the rights of husbands who were in fact not fathers, or of non-husbands who were. Today the presumption of the husband's paternity is a "rebuttable" presumption, meaning you are allowed prove someone else is the father, by genetic tests, for instance, This lets the husband off the hook for child support, and makes the actual father liable.

Your lawyers will deal with who pays what. If the wife is at home looking after children then normally the husband would help pay the costs as well as child support.

You can receive free legal counsel in most States and it would be wise to contact your local Bar Association (lawyers.) They will advise you.
