If an underage teen is pregnant and the father was paying child support before the teen got pregnant does the father stop paying child support?
The father will be paying (or SHOULD be paying) child support at LEAST until the child turns 18, and could possibly have to pay longer depending on what a judge says. For instance, in some cases if the father is a college graduate, then some courts require them to pay some kind of support if the child continues through college.

Can an underage child sue their father for child support if the father stopped paying for child support after 3 months?
Answer . \nNo, this is up to your mother or guardian (which could be a grandparent or uncle/aunt.) Although it's quite disgusting that some fathers refuse to take some fin…ancial responsibility for their children it does happen often. \n. \nI really respect you for coming on this board and the fact you are willing to try and go after your father. You seem like a very mature young person. Perhaps you could sit down with your mother or guardian and see if they will take this to court. The courts (although it takes a bit of time) will go after your father and even dock his pay for child support if he stops making child support payments again. \n. \nI'm proud to have met you on this board and you have that talk with your mom or guardian. \n. \nGood luck\nGod Bless\nMarcy
Answer Morally, YES. Answer If the court says so, yes.

If an underage teen is pregnant does the father of the underage teen have to pay child support or can the underage teen control that?
well yeh you have to give support you got her pregnant for the love of god
Im a pregnant teen nd my mother says that if I give the child the fathers last name that the father automatically has to pay child support is that true?
It's not just a one-two-three thing, but if you are not married then yes, he does have to pay child support, but in order to make him start paying, a trip to court will …be necessary. Call your attorney if you have one, or your local city hall if you don't. There should be someone there who can help you out.
Depends on the state.
This is interpretive, based on age and ability to earn an income, but most often, his parents are ordered to pay if he can't. Of interest, the boy can still be ordered to pay …even in cases where he's the victim of statutory rape.
Yes, but you have to prove that is the father and go thru all the paper work.
Unless the teen gets emancipated, yes, and it could be increased to cover additional costs. see links below
That would be unlikely unless she is emancipated or moves in with the baby's father. You best answer is always to contact a local attorney. They will know best what the pract…ice is in your area. My larger worry is that he may attempt to gain custody using this as an assault on your parental fitness.
Yes. In addition, he could also be ordered to pay additional support for the grandchild.
Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
The laws differ in different jurisdictions. In some states the father's parents can be held responsible for child support until he reaches eighteen years of age. In some state…s paternity would be established but would not be enforced until the father reaches eighteen. You need to check the laws in your jurisdiction.
You are still responsible for supporting your child until she reaches 18, or in some atates, if she has a child, 16 or 17. You are NOT, however responsible for supporting her …child. She can apply for assistance.
If she is married, no. If she is unmarried, yes.
