What to do if my ex-girlfried has my child and I want to pay child support but I want it ordered through the court so she can’t come back later and ask for back support?

How do I do this? All the forms on the court web site say husband/wife this is not the case. And child support enforcement is not helpful.

I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney to assist you in the drafting of a stipulation as to the amount of child support that you will be paying on a monthly basis subject to a court order to be signed before a notary public.
