Will an obligated parent still be responsible for back child support if they voluntarily relinquish their parental rights and the custodial parent agrees to waive the arrearages?

Assuming that the support was paid to the custodial parent and was not through the state's division of child enforcement then the court might waive the debt. Generally a voluntary relinquishment of parental rights is granted to allow the child/children to be eligible for adoption. A TPR is not meant to be a legal venue for a parent to be relieved of the financial obligation to their minor children.

Can you relinquish parental rights to not pay child support in VA?

You owe child support--you made the child and therefore you have to help support it until it is 18. There is nothing you can do unilaterally to change this fact. However, if the other parent finds someone who will adopt the child, or agrees that you may relinquish rights, then you may make some progress in that direction.

Can a father have his name added to a child's birth certificate if the mother agrees?

A child's biological father can have his name added to a child's birth certificate regardless of whether or not the mother agrees to it. If the biological father voluntarily relinquishes his parental rights and the child is legally adopted by another man, his name can be added to the birth certificate in place of the biological father.

If you sign over your rights as a father in the state of Texas do you still have to pay child support?

Yes, giving up parental rights does not release the parent from financial obligation to the child or children; until they reach the age of emancipation or the age stipulated in the child support order. Texas allows the father to discontinue child support if he terminates rights. It happened to me. If Mom agrees to let Dad voluntarily terminate his parental rights, then, no, he won't have to pay child support going forward (but will still have to pay any arrearage unless Mom agrees to forgive it). However, Dad can

In Florida can the father sign over parental rights to an unborn child if the mother agrees?

Unless the couple are married the alledged father has no rights to a child therefore cannot relinquish such rights until the child is born and parentage is established to the satisfaction of the court. Likewise, custody, visitation and child support issues cannot be addressed until parentage is established through paternity testing.

Can a teenage mothers parents adopt the baby if no father is on birth certificate?

If the mother agrees, however if the father is known, it would be best to have his cooperation as he would have to voluntarily relinquish his parental rights in order for such an adoption to take place. The court will make every effort to notify the father of the pending adoption including, in most states, publication of the proposed adoption in the newspaper. And even if the father remains clueless and finds out at a later date what happened, again, depending on state law, he may still have the right to petition the court to have the adoption declared null and void if he wishes to reclaim and exercise his parental rights. You need to consult with an attorney specializing in family law in your state of residence, lay out all of the facts and get an informed opinion. There are just too many variables to give a detailed answer on such a complex issue on an internet forum.

In most states the baby's father cannot sign over parental rights unless the court agrees. The court will act in the best interest of the child, and usually the mother is involved in any such decision.

If the mother of your child will not let you see your son and wants you to sign over your rights do you still have to pay child support?

You will still have to pay back if any owed. After you sign you won't have to pay anymore because all your legal rights to the child will be terminiated. If Mom agrees to let you voluntarily terminate your parental rights, then, no, you won't have to pay child support going forward (but will still have to pay any arrearage unless Mom agrees to forgive it). But DO NOT do this if it not what you want to do. If you want to be a father, fight for it. Get court ordered visitation, then if Mom refuses to allow you to see your child, she can be held in contempt of court.

If you sign away parental rights do you still have to pay child support in Mississippi?

That depends on the agreement. If you signed away all of your parental rights, you also signed away all of your parental responsibility. It depends upon what the court order says. If the court agrees, the child support can be removed, but you can't duck out on your responsibilities simply by signing away the kid. The state has a vested interest in insuring that the child is supported.

How does a parent who has primary physical custody obtain sole custodial rights?

In some states a petition can be filed by the primary custodian to amend the current custodial order. The usual procedure is to file a new custody suit/petition in the appropriate state court in the county where the petitioner resides. Judges are very reluctant to grant sole custody to one parent. It is generally granted only when the non custodial parent agrees to relinquish their parental rights or a parent is found guilty of abuse and/or neglect and/or endangerment.

Agree is singular. Agrees is plural.

File a motion to quash (rescind) with the court where the subpoena was issued. If the judge agrees that the subpoena has no merit he or she will declare it invalid.
