Meet our heroine, a strong-willed single mom who turned her life around, graduated college, and built a beautiful family with her loving husband. But there's a twist - her ex-boyfriend, the biological father of her son, refuses to let her husband adopt the child, yet also resents paying child support. As she navigates the murky waters of legal battles and emotional turmoil, we're left to wonder: is she right to insist on child support from a man who refuses to be a father in any way but legally? 🤷‍♀️💔

As the internet debates, we dive into the complexities of this family drama. Let's see what the world thinks of this situation... 🌍💬

NTA if he wants to remain the legal father then he needs to fulfill that responsibility. If he lets your husband adopt the son, then he's done. But for now it seems like he'll be paying for his immaturity, literally. I hope you can lawyer up and get that money from him 💰

NTA. You've offered him an out, he can sign away his rights and pay nothing. HE IS CHOOSING TO PAY. If you are living comfortably and don't need the money day to day, put it in a college fund. Have it ready to give him for a wedding, a down payment, a period of unemployment...whatever. That money is your son's. Do not give it away. 💪💰
