Best Answer

The answer is simple:

  • Child support is paid to the parent who has physical custody of the children by the parent who does not support the children in a residential setting on a daily basis. The child support goes toward the expense of providing a home and necessities for the children.
  • Your boyfriend has to pay child support because he is the children's father and therefore legally responsible for the children's support.
  • You and your child have nothing to do with your boyfriend's obligation to pay child support for his other children.
  • Now, the questions that you should consider are: Why should your boyfriend get to not support his children because he has started another family with you? Should he be allowed to leave you eventually, start a third family, and not help support the children he makes with you?
