Child support is to be paid by the biological parent. If you can prove that you are not the parent, or the adoptive parent, you should not be required to pay child support. You have to prove that to a court, and it does not matter that you have never seen the child.

If the child is biologically yours you cannot get out of child support. Why would you not want to take care of your child? And if the isn't yours i think u should still treat it like it was yours!!


You could be asked to pay for any expenses the mother had after birth but before the adoption. Once adopted the adoptive parents pay for their child.


If the DNA test proves the child is yours you have to pay regardless of your feelings towards the child.


Of course not - paternity must be established before support is ordered; I sense that there's more to this question.


no you should never have to pay for a child that is not yours i know as i am a child with a dad overseas and my sisters have a different dad and he does not have to pay for them


No. That person would need to establish their own legal connection, and yours, to the child in order to be entitled to seek child support.No. That person would need to establish their own legal connection, and yours, to the child in order to be entitled to seek child support.No. That person would need to establish their own legal connection, and yours, to the child in order to be entitled to seek child support.No. That person would need to establish their own legal connection, and yours, to the child in order to be entitled to seek child support.


no because it will still be his child, not yours.


If you have signed the birth certificate, then yes, that child is considered yours to support and claim. In some states, you can pay for that child if you provided support or let that child take on your name.


No, you are not supposed to love the child. But you are supposed to financially support your offspring.


Yes. The child is still yours, and still needs support.


If you have paid child support and it turns out the child is not yours you are entitled to sue for repayment of the money.


If the mother says the child is yours and you do not fight it and demand a DNA test, and she was not married at the time of birth, yes, you can be forced to support a child that is not yours. Conversely, if you were married to her when the child was conceived and or born you will be responsible for child support as the child was made during your marriage.see links


You can stop child support payments on the grounds that the child is not your biological child only if you did not know that when you agreed to the support, and if a Court approves your request to stop.



Ethically, if the child is yours then you pay support. The circumstances are irrelevant.


Get a DNA test. Then if it proves the child isn't yours you won't have to pay child support. You might even be a able to get back the money you have already paid in child support.


You might have to pay child support if you were married to the mother when the child was conceived/born, or if you signed an acknowledgment of paternity.


yes you can get sued for back child support. If the child is yours, you need to take responsibility until the child is 18.


If the child is definitely yours, then certainly.


You can sign away your rights, but you will still owe for child support. The child is yours.


Yes.Just because she is pregnant she didn't become a adult or got a job did she? The father of her child has to pay child support for his child and you for yours.


Yes! Your child is yours forever, they are not the ones getting married. The only way you will not be paying child support is if you sign away your rights and her new husband adopts your children. Is this really worth you never seeing your child again?


If a child is yours and the parent that supported the child puts out a claim against you then it is up to the relevant authority to estimate what is owed. The existence of a piece of paper in noway should abrogate you of your responsibility to your offspring.



How do you know it isn't yours without the DNA? I would suggest you get the test to be sure. What if the courts denie you a DNA
