In most states no matter if it is an agreed voluntary signing over the father will still have to pay child support until the child is officially adopted. I actually went through this with my ex and they told him until our daughter is adopted he will pay child support.
what is going to happen when i give up my right as a father? will i still have to pay child support?
Yes, a father can give up his parental rights but he still have to pay child support.
If you relinquish your parental rights, you are still not going to get child support payments. The child support is for the child.
It's likely that the father will still owe support until/unless the child is adopted. see links
An unmarried father cannot "choose" to not pay child support. The laws in every state require that a father pay for the support of his child. The mother must bring an action to the appropriate court so that a child support order can be established. Visitation rights are separate and a father can have visitation rights established by the court. Visitation rights are not dependent on paying child support.
No, when a mother or father relinquishes his parental rights he is no longer responsible for child support.
Termination of parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.
NO, YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS TO THE CHILD AFTER SIGNING AWAY PARENTAL RIGHTS
depends on your state ...but all you give up are major decsion making but you still have to pay support
He will still have to pay support until/unless the child is adopted.
Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
If you mean regarding your child they have no rights. Regarding you, you are still a minor and same rules as before apply. They still have to support you. You and the father of the child have to support your child. Pregnancy does not emancipate you.
no, but he can't see links below Termination of parental rights does not terminate child support.
You can sign your rights away but you will still have to pay child support if you are the father or mother of the child. There is no way to avoid paying child support.
Yes. He has rights until his rights are terminated by a court order.
yes you can but you would still have to pay for child support
No he does not because he is not the child's parent anymore.
Relinquishing parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation. But if you're the one petitioning this, the court is going to question why you would want to retain it while cutting off his access to the child?
Depends on your state, but courts say child support and visitation are two totally different subjects and are not considered together. Father has visitation rights irrespective of whether or not he pays child support.
last i knew unless there is a step father willing to adopt the courts will not let you give up rights if there is a step father willing to adopt you will not have to pay child support
Only if the child is adopted. Otherwise signing your parental rights away means you will still pay child support.
Yes. A father can give up their rights to a child at any age. However, legally they are still obligated to pay child support unless you drop the case completely. They are also legally obligated to pay back child support unless you drop that. Also, although they give up their rights legally to the child, in the eyes of the law, they are still the father. This means that the law can still go after them for child support if they want to.
As the father has no assumed rights to the child, he can still be ordered to pay by the courts.
Yes, but then you would lose your rights as the child's legal father.
Yes, giving up parental rights does not release the parent from financial obligation to the child or children; until they reach the age of emancipation or the age stipulated in the child support order. Texas allows the father to discontinue child support if he terminates rights. It happened to me. If Mom agrees to let Dad voluntarily terminate his parental rights, then, no, he won't have to pay child support going forward (but will still have to pay any arrearage unless Mom agrees to forgive it). However, Dad can
