Single mommas, do you get child support?

I don't really like to get into peoples personal details, but I was wondering if you are a single mom do you get child support?

Do you ever look at the amount you get and wonder how that amount is supposed to cover half of your child's living expenses? I know I sure do.

    I had my daughter 14 months ago and I will finally be receiving child support next month. But if he fails to pay he gets to spend time in jail. So we will see next month if he's actually going to follow through.

    Well I found that I'm supposed to be getting $428 a month and he is only paying $40.04 a week, that barely puts gas in the vehicle to get to and from her Dr appointments let along but diapers and other things she needs. I'm half tempted to tell him to just sign over his rights because my fiance is the one who is raising her and has been since the day she was born. And now he's threatening to get visitation and everything else, he thinks he will get it but for one he was abusive and two he denied that she was his, so what should I do? Have him sign over his rights? Or make him pay?
