6 months to a year. CA Family Law Code
7822. (a) A proceeding under this part may be brought where the child has been left without provision for the child's identification by the child's parent or parents or by others or has been left by both parents or the sole parent in the care and custody of another for a period of six months or by one parent in the care and custody of the other parent for a period of one year without any provision for the child's support, or without communication from the parent or parents, with the intent on the part of the parent or parents to abandon the child.
it took 6 month
The law says about 9 months. But it varies depending which part you are in.
'Child abandonment' is when a child is intentionally left without either parent. If the child is with one parent, it doesn't matter how long it is that the other parent has seen it, it's not 'abandonment'.
How long can a parent go without seeing a child before its considered abandonment in the state of Pennsylvania
Abandonment is a very broad spectrum when it concerns a child. Quite often this can be anywhere from 6 months to a year with no effort to make contact, or even to pay child support.
I would say that if a parent has to ask this question, they have already in some way abandoned their children.
it is abandoned when you get tired of it
'Abandonment' is when a child is left somewhere with no parent, ie, the child has been ditched somewhere. If the child is with one parent, it doesn't matter how long the other parent doesn't see it, it's never 'abandonment'.
Before the child is considered abandoned? Three months of physical absence and/or failure to provide for the child is considered abandonment and the courts may involuntarily terminate parental rights if a motion is filed for the same. It should be noted, however, that termination of parental rights does not automatically terminate child support obligation.
It depends on where you live. Even in the US, it varies by state, but it's generally 1+ year(s). Just to point out that in most cases child support--even if it's only paid because the court has forced it and/or it's only paid sporadically--is considered contact.
