What would you like to do?
You would think the answer would be no, but there are many men in the U.S. who have been ordered to pay child support for children that aren't biologically theirs. For example…: your girlfriend gives birth, believing that the child is yours, you sign an acknowledgment of paternity in order to have your name placed on the birth certificate as the father. Five years later, you find out that the child isn't yours, and that is verified via a DNA test. It's still possible that you might be ordered to support the child. Why? Because you already acknowledged paternity, and you waited too late (too much time has passed) to contest it. On the other hand if you have been notified by a court there is a child support case against you, you can request a DNA test to determine if you are the father.
Answer ABSOLUTELY! Dad created kid, didn't he?
Child support pays for the food, clothing, shelter, entertainment, shelter, and health of the child. The parent or caregiver that is authorized to receive these payments has e…very right and authority to use that money in any way they see fit so long as it is being used to benefit the child.
No, but if the man chooses to take accountability in a court of law for that child deeming himself the "parent" then after that point there is no turning back adn the court ca…n order it. ANSWER Under many circumstances this can happen. Right now there's a New York man paying child support to his ex-wife whose now married to the bio dad. In 20 states, once a child support order is in place, it cannot be overturned, regardless of paternity. This is commonly done to military men on deployment, who cannot return to fight the order. A Kansas man is currently trying to get the law changed. He's paying support to a woman he never had sex with. Missouri passed a paternity fraud law last July, but the man has just two years to learn he's not the father, to discontinue the support order. If a man lives with, or marries, a woman with a child, and his income improves their overall lifestyle, he can be ordered to pay child support to maintain this, even in cases where the bio dad is paying. see links below
Yes, but you get it adjusted. see link below
In general, child support is a percentage of net income. In Illinois, for example, it's 20% of net income for one child, 25% for two, etc. Income includes almost everything, i…ncluding overtime, unemployment benefits and workers compensation, but not welfare payments or SSI.

If it's a general inquiry, child support is generally calculated based on income, custodial agreements and other factors using percentages established by each state. There is …no "average" amount as circumstances can vary.
If you were an active partner in the home when the child was adopted then of course you need to pay child support. Stop looking for loop holes. Your signature on an adoption i…s just as much a lifetime commitment to care for that child as is the act of procreating with your wife. Be a man and pay up. It is after all CHILD SUPPORT. They need you.
It's unlikely that the State will care who signs the checks. Added: Yes it is possible.
$12.00 per hour equals $24,000 dollars a years. $30,000 a years is 25% more than $24,000. In order to figure out your hourly rate you would do the following mathematic equatio…n: ($12.00)(1.25)=$16.00 per hour.
Get in touch with your State's child support agency. Be patient but persistent. Good luck!
If you work 40 hoursa week for a year that is 2080 hours. 30000/2080 = $14.42/hr
If you are not collecting Welfare, and your intent is to release him from the obligation, a motion will need to be made to the court, however if he already has parental rights…, stopping support will not include stopping his access rights. Also, though the mother can file to suspend support, the man cannot in most of the country, whether he is the father or not.
The judge will determine based on needs and finances. Most states have guidelines that must be followed by the judge who issues the child support order.
Every state has child support guidelines that are based on such factors as number and age of children, income of the parties, health insurance, and other related circumstances….
Depending on how much he makes and can afford.
