Best Answer

First off you have to ask yourself why you were forced to give up your parental rights. If you gave no indication of helping to support that child, (not accusing you here) but were into drugs, served prison time, etc., these are good reasons for having these parental rights taken away from you. If you did none of the above and you really wanted to be part of your child's life please seek legal counsel and start fighting for these rights. Yes, you can be forced to pay child support even though you don't have parental rights. This is your child and you should want to help pay for the care of raising your child. If you don't trust the mother as to how she spends the money to send, then you can have papers drawn up by a lawyer stating that you want to see all receipts as to how the mother is spending the money for that child.

Can a father reliquish his parental rights to avoid paying child support?

Generally you still have to pay child support even though you are giving up your parental rights unless the child is being adopted.


Can a father terminate his parental rights in Louisiana?

If the court approves, yes. You still have to pay child support though.


If you sign over your parental rights in Alabama do you still have to pay child support?

I don't believe you ever have to pay child support if you relinquish your parental rights. But why would you do that though? It's a win-lose situation. If you are no longer the child's legal parent, you could lose a lot of your rights, like visitation rights.


Can biological father sign parental rights to child maternal grandmother even though grandmother and child not in the same home?

Only the courts can grant custody/parental rights. In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.


How does your child's father sign over his rights even though he is not on the birth certificate?

Paternity must be established before any discussion of parental rights. In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

Yes if the other parent and court agrees. It does not mean you get out of child support though as some think.

Yes, a father can be allowed by the court to give up his parental rights even when the child is not up for adoption. This means he will still have to pay child support though. If you mean he would sign his parental rights over to another man, no. There would still be a mother in the picture and she would be the only one with parental rights.

In Ky my parental rights were terminated four years ago now I get a letter in the mail where the courts want me to pay child support can the courts do this I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TO REGAIN MY RIGHTS?

Even if your parental rights have been terminated, your obligations do not necessarily end at the same time. The state of Kentucky can compel you to pay child support, even though you are not allowed to visit your child. Many times a good family court lawyer can help you with such a situation, especially if you want to regain your parental rights.


In KY if your parental rights were terminated four years ago against your wishes All of a sudden you have been petitioned to appear in court to pay child support can the courts do this?

In most states you can be compelled to pay child support even though your parental rights have been terminated. Only if the child is adopted by a step parent or a new family will your financial obligations cease.


What is your rights to your child in tn if you pay your child support?

If you were married to the mother when the child came or if you were not and have been to court to prove by DNA that you are the biological father so you get your parental rights, you can also petition for custody and visitation. Custody is usually shared though unless the mother is unfit. if you have not been through the court and is not paying court ordered child support, you have to go to court to prove paternity first and you can then petition for your other parental rights. Custody, visitation and child support are all separate issues in court. Child support is a legal obligation and does not automatically lead to other rights. You have to petition for them separately.


What does it mean when something is released by parents of their parental rights?

They are no longer responsible for you even though you are a minor


What do you need to do if the man that pays child support to your child is not the father?

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.

Can you make the father sign over his parental rights even though there are no court documents?

No, only the court can permanently terminate parental rights. Courts are very reluctant to take away all parental rights except in extreme circumstances of neglect and/or abuse. After establishing paternity, a biological father has the legal right to seek custody or visitation privileges. He will also be held legally obligated to pay child support, provide adequate medical care and such other issues so ordered by the court.

At what age do you have no parental rights?

{| |- | In most states, afterl they reach the age of 18, though it is 19 in a couple states and 21 in New York. Once they reach the age of 18, there is no legal responsibility. They do not have to provide support or co-sign contracts for them. |}


Is it true your mom can give you up even if you are 15?

Yes a minor can be given up at any age. The parent would have to have good reasons to do so though if they expect the state to care of their kids and they still have to pay child support to the state for the child when they give up parental rights (a must if the state will take them) and if they one day want custody and rights back they will most likely not get it. Only a judge can decide if you are allowed to give up parental rights.


Does everyone have the right to be a parent?

Unless they had their parental rights taken away by the court, then yes. Having the right does not always mean they should though.
