Default retroactive chid support

hello,
I have been separated from the ex and have our child living with me since then for a year. Is it difficult or wrong to ask for retroactive child support or move past it? I have asked for help from the beginning but he would always get very angry and has threatened to take the child if he has to start paying or go for 50/50 if I ask?

I would not fear asking for 50 50. Just cause he asks for it doesn't mean he's going to get it and it's a long tough road there.

Do you have a current court order ?

We have nothing in place yet, he became increasingly verbally abusive in our child's presence which escalated when I simply asked for financial help for our child. I would like to eventually grow to 50 50 as baby gets older and father moves closer as he and I live 4 to 5 hours away. But the common thing I'd he only says he wants 50 50 is to not pay child support so because or the threats I stopped asking which was his goal

so he moved away? Yes it does sound like he just wants it for financial reasons and not for the best interest of the child.

File a motion for support including retroactive. Tell him youre willing to look at 50/50 but will be seeking child support in the interim. You can change cs if that happens, you cant sit waiting for a cs order.

Is this motion easy to do without using a lawyer? And do I file for custody and access at the same time when doing the cs?

You should get a lawyer. You could look up the family court forms and motion materials but a lawyer would be much more helpful. As expensive as they are, if your ex is being difficult, a lawyer would be able to stand up to his bs.

You can't ask got child support retroactive to the date of separation, only to the date you filed an application for child support to court.
