A parent cannot just 'give up' their parental rights (which is a different thing than custodial/visitation rights). Termination of parental rights has to be approved by a judge. Generally speaking, judges are very reluctant to approve it unless it's for the purpose of adoption or the parent presents a clear danger to the child. They certainly will not approve it merely so the parent can avoid paying child support. If that were allowed, people would be lined up to do it, and then a big portion of those children would end up having to be supported by the taxpayers.
Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
NO, YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS TO THE CHILD AFTER SIGNING AWAY PARENTAL RIGHTS
Yes, until/unless the child is adopted.
Yes, until/unless the child is adopted.
If the father Legally gave up his parental rights - (signed legal papers), then he is no longer legally responsible to pay child support for the child. Did he give up parental rights so you could remove the child from the country? A family member of mine had to have her baby's father sign away his parental rights so he would not have to pay child support when he entered the military. So - once parental rights are signed away Legally, the father has NO obligation to pay child support. You cannot have it both ways - you cannot have him sign away his parental rights, yet still expect him to pay child support.
No. Both parties must agree before the father can give up parental rights. YES!!
Yes but the mother/guardian shares most of the costs
Specific law may vary by province, but generally, termination of parental rights only terminates your right to see your child and/or have any say-so in their lives. It is in Canada as it is in the US, in that termination of parental rights does not absolve child support obligations unless and until the child is legally adopted by a third party who assumes all legal and financial responsibility for the child.
If the father gave up all parental rights - then he would not have to pay child support. Plus, if the mother is out of the country and is an illegal immigrant - she would not be a part of the child support system. She would need to be in this country. But, the main things is - if the father "legally" (signed papers) to give up his parental rights, then he is not liable for child support.
No. When a father signs over his parental rights, he gives up the right to visitation.
Courts usually only allows parent to give up parental rights if the child is being adopted. But if they would allow her, it would be for the custodial parent to decide whether they would need child support or not. If they need support from the state the state will go after the mother first.
No, but if you want a relationship with your child you can petition the court for parental rights and contact. That would be a good thing.
Not until the parental rights of the biological father have been terminated.There are a couple ways to do that:The bio father gives his consent and voluntarily surrenders his parental rights.You go to court and can get them to involuntarily terminate his parental rights; this one is much more difficult: if the bio father has abandoned the child, isn't paying child support, is in jail or is a danger to the child (or something similar), you may have a case, but if he's visiting and paying support you will have to go with the first option.
Your husband can only adopt if the girls father willingly gives up his parental rights or the court terminates them. As her dad he will pay child support until the adoption is through. Then your husband have that responsibility and parental rights just like you. So see what your ex wants. The court stops child support etc when the adoption is through.
As you have now given up your rights to the child you do not have to pay back child support.
A father can voluntarily sign over his parental rights, provided it is approved by the courts AND the mother, provided she's not collecting Welfare, now or in the future. When she collects AFDC, she gives up any right to claim, or not claim, child support. (see related question) If these conditions are met, he's not liable for paying child support to the child, or to free that child for adoption. He can loose his parental rights is he lives a life that would be detrimental to a child. States are now, more and more often, taking into account what is best for the CHILD. So, the behavior of the parents can have more of an effect on their parental rights. If the parent's behavior is chronically bad - drug dealing, crime, that sort of thing, they are much more likely to loose parental rights.
You should consult an attorney, but it's my understanding that parental rights and child support have nothing to do with each other. You may choose to give up any rights to your child, but that doesn't negate the fact that you're the child's father, and in the eyes of the law (and morally), you are partially responsible for supporting that child. That said, it's your child you're talking about. You may want to consider alternatives to giving up your rights. A child deserves a father, and you Amy live to regret your decision.
yes he does
If a biological parent gives up their parental rights, then the spouse of the other parent is able to adopt the child. The parent who gave up their rights has no say in the matter.
Yes he does.
In most states you will lose you parental rights and if you want it back generally you will need a lawyer.
He will still have to pay support until/unless the child is adopted.
Yes, he can be. see links below
This depends on whether the child's father also allows it.
