We are not together just had baby July 9 .. My mom thinks he should be paying me a set amount of money for my son , or take him to court for child support instead , what should I do? He currently is taking care of his girlfriend and her daughter (by another man) .. he buys what I ask for the baby.. but should he instead be paying me a set amount for him?

i think as long as he's taking care of what he needs to without the courts i wouldn't bother going through the courts BUT if he starts slacking then you should definitely do what you need to do
the only real reason to get courts involved in child support issues is when one parent is shirking their responsibilities0

Well courts objectively set things based on the evidence. They also clearly outline your rights as a parent, custody, and visitation. This makes things simpler. Also he caused the child so he should help care for it. Just as his new girlfriends baby's father should be taking care of that child.0
