Ten years ago, an anonymous person posted on Yahoo Answers if it was legally possible to make her male babysitter that is not biologically related to her child pay child support.
The person explained, “I’m a single mom going to college with my sister. We currently rent an apartment together. A couple of weeks ago, I asked my neighbor, a trustworthy guy, if he could watch my kids for two hours while I went to class and my sister wasn’t home, and he agreed.
She goes on to ask, “If he babysits and doesn’t accept pay, can I sue him for child support because he took on a fatherly role?? I’m sure I can convince a court that he accepted a fatherly role.”
Podcaster, Oshay Duke Jackson, discusses with Texas-based attorney, Dennis “Uncle D” Spurling about “How Dating Single Moms Can LEGALLY Get You on Child Support!” Though the question was laughable and posted ten years ago, it is surprising how the legal ramifications can be true today, and how men are advised in a joking manner to stay away from single mothers because of it.
