if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Probably to the County Social Services Dept. if the kid(s) are in foster homes.
yes, unless/until the child is adopted
It's likely that the father will still owe support until/unless the child is adopted. see links
Yes, until/unless the child is adopted.
If the father terminates his parental rights the single mother can legally and solely have full custody of that child as long as the courts decide that she is capable of working and providing a safe environment for the child. There are times that the parents of the young mother, or possibly grandparents will help in looking after the child if the mother is a minor and finishing her education and the courts will often look favorably on this.
Yes as the father has become a defaulter then the mother can get full custody and have the parental rights of the father revoked.
Yes. And it's not the mother who gets his rights terminated, it is the court.
Yes, if the mother does not want the child and the father is willing to take the child. Then the mother may sign her rights over to the father if the father is able to take of the child. Signing over one's rights will not terminate child support obligation(s).
Termination of parental rights, TPR, is a long and very difficult, complex process. You need to be in touch with the child welfare agency in your area, and with an attorney. And by the way, neither parent terminates the rights of the other. It is the authority of the state that terminates parental rights.
Normally you would not be allowed to relinquish your rights just to avoid paying support, but, you are allowed to do so if the mother doesn't want the support money.
No,the same rules apply wether you are the father or the mother you are not obligated to pay support.
