I am a single mother and have a one and a half year old daughter. My ex boyfriend is the father and we haven't been in contact since breaking up in April. We broke up due to strain from our relationship and the fact that I was so busy with the baby and we never really did much together anymore. Also he is lazy, didn't do much to help with her and doesn't have any real motivation in his life. In addition he never show any real interest in being a father.
We are still friendly with each other but he doesn't show any interest in his child and rarely has seen her. Being a mother is wonderful and my daughter is my world but not wanting to create friction and hostility between each other, so never pushed him too hard since breaking up.
I told him he can see her whenever he wants and left it up to him. I can handle and have pretty much done everything since she was born so never felt I needed anything. Am I wrong for not pursuing him for child support or a lot of contact?

It's his child, too. If he's a lazy ass it may be more trouble than it's worth. I don't know a thing about how to make it happen or what's involved. It's also just hard to imagine him not offering to help. Sorry he's such an ass… I know that's not much help; I just thought you deserved a better answer than the first one.1
