If a child is adopted by stepfather does biological father still pay child support?

The biological father may only stop paying child support under one of the following four circumstances: Death of the child; the child turns 18 and decides not to pursue higher education; the child quits or graduates higher education; or the biological father is found not to be the "true" father. So, if a stepfather adopts them, more than likely, the biological will still be responsible for child support.

Do you still pay child support if the child has a child and does not live with the mother?

Generally, if the child is still under the age of 18 you will still have to pay child support. However, there are generally provisions allowing you to re-evaluate child support amount and payments. Talk to the mother, and see if you can settle something out of court. However, if you have a legal binding document saying you have to pay, then you still have to pay.

If a child of legal age still receives child support is that child still considered a minor Assuming the child is in New York where child support ends at 21?

This is an area of interpretation. The child remains under the authority of the court as long as the obligation for support continues, so does this extend to all aspects of the order. I came across a question earlier by a father whose 18 year old daughter wants to live with him in New York. Since she's of the age of majority, does the court have jurisdiction to decide custody, and thus switch the obligation for paying child support from the father to the mother? In that case, the court did accept the motion to change custody, so the issue is being addressed as if the girl was under age 18.

Does a father need to pay child support to the mother if the child does not live with her?

A parent must obey the child support order. A custodial parent may be serving in the military with the child under temporary guardianship. That is no reason to stop paying child support. If the child isn't living with the custodial parent who is receiving child support the matter must be brought before the court.

In the state of Georgia if father of the child wants all rights terminated is he still liable for child support?

Yes. see linksAns 2.The father has the option to waive his rights if he wants to, and if he can convince the judge that he is sane, sober and not under coercion as he does so.This has nothing at all to do with child support, which is not his right, but his responsibility. In general the mother can't waive child support either, because support is her child's right, not hers.THAT IS CORRECT.....unless the child's mother has re-married and her husband wants to adopt this child, that would release the biological father from paying child support.

If your a under age mother and the father is an older adult how can you get child support?

The age of the parents has no bearing on child support. All the State cares about is who are the biological parents, who has custody, and how much money does each parent make. You get child support by filing a child support case with the Attorney General's office in your state.
