    If you take him to court for child support, the judge will make him pay you a certain amount so he will be forced to get a job. And if he doesn't pay he will get in a lot of trouble.

    There are also a lot of government programs that can help you out. Wic is a great organization that gives mother's baby formula, diapers, and food. You could also get on food stamps until you are able to work. Some states even have programs where you can get big discounts on daycare so that you can get a job.

    But you should definitely take this guy to court. He has responsibilities that he isn't taking care of. And you should file with the court as soon as possible because it could take a while to get a court date. And it does take time to get food stamps so if you do need them, you should sign up right away. I'm not sure how long it takes to get help from Wic. You should also google this and see what other government programs they have in your state to help new mothers.

    By the way, there are a lot of places that will let you have a free consultants with a lawyer so you should really look into that. A lawyer will have all of the information that you need because I'm not sure if the laws are exactly the same in Canada. You should go see a lawyer on Tuesday because you probably won't have time to do it after the baby comes. You should also look into any government programs and sign up for them this weekend so that you can get assistance as soon as possible.

    Good luck!

    if he has no income then he cannot contribute. Put the baby up for adoption and it will go to a family able to support it.
