Louisiana Court Rules that Unmarried Mom Can Recover Child Support from Dad for the Period They Were Living Together
In Stanley v. Nicosia, a Louisiana trial court ruled that child support was due from an unmarried father during the period the father was living with the mother and the child.

The court stated that child support would not be due from a married father for periods the father was living with the wife and child, but that there was no analogous provision for an unmarried father.
