Yes. Age doesn't matter. If you make a baby, then you must submit to Florida's child support guidelines system to see if you must pay support. The answer isn't always easy, because who pays and how much they pay is based on income, cost of health care, cost of daycare, how many overnights each parent spends with the child, and many other factors.

Child support is mandatory. If you have any information on his income an attorney can put together a child support proposal for his agreement. If you are lacking information then you need some assistance either from a private attorney or from the Department of Revenue Child Support enforcement to first seek to obtain information on his income from which the court can order child support.
