In most cases in the US, a minor is not liable for paying child support until he or she reaches the legal age of majority. The rare exception is if the underage person h…as an income source which warrants support being paid (active trust fund or inheritance, celebrity status, etc.). When it concerns unmarried couples, child support, custody, visitation and other matters cannot be addressed by the court until the child is born and parentage is established regardless of the age of the participants. When the minor reaches the legal age of majority he or she can be ordered to pay support based on their ability to do so, but arrears would not apply. But, if the minor was sexually abuse by a much older female, he is still obligate for child support at some point, even retroactive back to the date of the birth.
Child support is paid by the parents. It is a court awarded decision where one parent contributes a stipulated amount of money to keep the minor(s) in the life style to which …they have become accustomed to. It is paid by one parent thru the courts to the parent who has custody of the minors. Its purpose is to pay for the expenses incurred by the minor in the custodial household. For example if a single parent family home there is one adult and three minors. That is a total of four individuals in one home. each individual is responsible for 1/4 of the expenses occurred in the house. The three minors would make up a total of 3/4 of the expenses such as rent, electricity, gas, telephone, etc. So if each child is awarded 200$ a month, that is a total of 600$ a month. That 600$ is supposed to pay for the household expenses, groceries, clothing, lunch money, bus fare, and all other necessities for maintaining the minor(s). Answer:If a minor have a child it's the minor's responsibility to pay for said child. Both parents of the child of course, even if both are minors. The grandparents are not obligated to pay for their grandchild. They still have to pay for their own child though.
If the minor father has no means of paying child support, then yeshis parents could be responsible for that. Answer2: Sadly the parents could be on the hook especially if the…minor child lives with them and has no way to support a baby. Bestthing you can do is try to meet with the other grandparents and seewhat can be done as well as make a visit to Social Services to seewhat benefits the child may be eligible for.
If a minor becomes a minor-parent, they are liable for child support to their child. Check your state laws.
Yes, even if the mother of the child is an adult and statutory rape is involved. see links
yes Research this one. I believe it has a morality provision in this regard, but can't find it right now. Lost the summary reference link on my computer for the state. Their… laws do not follow the same parameters as the rest of the US. They are developed based on case law reference.
Yes, unless the order of support terms deem otherwise, the obligated parent must continue to support his or her minor child according to the child support order.
If you're in the US... The parents (be they minors or not) of the baby are the only ones responsible for financially supporting the child. Hope they have jobs.
Yes, you must still pay child support, even if you're enrolled in school. If your income is reduced, or if you have no income, you may petition the court to reduce the amount …you are required to pay; however, keep in mind that until you do, the arrears will continue to accrue at the current rate.
That would not exempt the minor child's father from paying support.
Yes he does. His responsibility is just as big as the mother's is and the child have the same needs regardless of what your age is.
Yes they do. In some cases their parents can also be sued for child support until the minor parent can do it by themselves.
No, when married the minor becomes emancipated.
Yes. The matter of an unmarried minor child bearing a child will not relieve the either of the parents from financially supporting her.
