Kesha couldn’t believe how her life has turned out. She thought she was in a relationship with the “man of her dreams” so when she got pregnant, they couldn’t wait to be parents and share their life together.

Then one day, six months into her pregnancy, she received a phone call that changed everything. Come to find out, not only did her boyfriend Steve have three children, but he was married as well. This news crushed Kesha, and to make matters worse, he refused to speak to her or have anything to do with the baby.

Fast forward, now a year later, she was preparing to take him to court for child support. She didn’t want it to come to this, but Steve has only seen his son twice and has never offered to help financially. Living with her mother, while still going to school and working has been rough.

Initially, Kesha wasn’t going to go through with taking him to court because she didn’t believe in using the child support system to solve her problems, but times were hard. In her mind, it wasn’t supposed to go like this. She wasn’t prepared to do this alone.

What advice would you offer Kesha to help with her situation?
