I know that if you are illegal in the US, they will deport you. If your child is a US Citizen, the child will stay in the US and you will go back to your country of origin. They are trying to fix this problem, because of so many illegal immigrants coming across the border illegally and are having children. Well the children stay in the US and the parents are sent back. * Contact the state's department of children and family services for assistance. Immigration status does not relieve a parent of the right to receive support for their child or receive public assistance if necessary. Deportation is not "automatic" each case is assessed on the individual circumstances. Any child born in the US is a citizen. In such a situation the child is referred to as an "anchor baby" meaning the unlawfully present parent generally is given the opportunity to remain in the US. Children are NEVER taken from a parent simply because the parent is unlawfully present within the US.

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.

AbsolutelyIf the couple are not married and the assumed father did not sign the birth certificate or a declaration of parentage, then a paternity test will be necessary before the court will address the issue. The court can order a paternity test once the child support suit has been filed.The fact that the illegal immigrant may not be paying taxes or is undocumented is irrelevant.
