First, you're probably an adult, so no one "tricked" you into anything. Your choices are your choices and you're responsible for them. Secondly, you shouldn't have to pay child support for a child that isn't yours, but you'll need to approach the court with proof, such as an admission form the baby's father or a paternity test that validates your claim.
Divorce and domestic violence are separate issues. Not signing the divorce papers may not prevent the wife from getting the divorce and won't change any of the orders of the divorce such as property distribution, child support, etc.
If there is a support order in affect the obligated parent is responsible for keeping payments current and paying any arrearages. If the order was mandated after the divorce decree and the couple lived separately there may still be arrearages for support that the non custodial parent is responsible for paying.
Whether you can eliminate a debt that resulted from a divorce decree will depend on the type of debt. If you owe child support or alimony from a divorce then you will not be able to eliminate the debt in bankruptcy. If the divorce assigned some debt to you as part of the divorce and it was not assigned as child support or alimony then you may be able to eliminate the debt in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to eliminate debt assigned to you that is in the nature of a property settlement and not child support or alimony.
When you remarry, you and your new wife are responsible to pay the child support that you had in your divorce agreement. Presumably, you will continue working and making the payments.
The custodial parent in a divorce who receives child support typically is the one responsible for buying clothes, school supplies and other items. For parents who have a shared physical custody than they must decide who is responsible to pay.
When you relinquish your parental rights so the child can be adopted you are no longer responsible for paying child support. You are liable for support until/unless child is adopted.
If a father leaves a child he should always pay, that's a horrid thing to do
That may provide grounds for divorce in your jurisdiction. In any case, he is responsible for the support of that child until the child reaches at least eighteen years of age.
I believe your attorney is the one who is responsible for this, so you need to contact him or her and have this rectified. If the issue was not addressed in your divorce proceeding then you will need to petition now for a child support order. If child support was addressed and an amount set under state child support guidelines then you can request a copy of that order by visiting the court.
yes they can
You might want to rethink getting an immediate divorce unless you already have insurance through a job on your own, until your baby safely arrives. He will be responsible for child support.
I believe the spousal support decision by the court in the divorce decree would take precedence here .
