My understanding (in the State of) is that Ohio counts support payments as "contact"; thus, even if the non-custodial parent never showed up (in my case for nearly 6 years) the State of Ohio says "well he's been paying support so we count that just like him having continual weekly contact with the child". I feel this is total BS but what can I do, besides move out of state (incidently, my ex not seeing my child gives me a great advantage to move out of state, however - so i'd be better off moving than staying here. go fig)
It's doubtful the court will terminate his parental rights if he's providing financial support (even if he hasn't maintained contact with the child). However, you can contact him and see if he'd be willing to voluntarily terminate his parental rights, in which case the court might agree to allow that. And, he may be willing to do that because that means that he will no longer have to pay child support.
A childs mother must file a petition for child support in the local family court.
If the father is on SSI the child is entitled to check too from SSI. If the paternity of the child has been established you are fine. You can contact SSI with the childs birth record, file a child support action and the child will receive his own check. If paternity has not been established hire and attorney or contact you local child support enforcement agency.
Relinquishing one's parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.
Relinquishing parental rights does not terminate support; however, generally, adoption does.
Terminating one's parental rights does not terminate one's parental responsibilities.
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.
Yes as the father has become a defaulter then the mother can get full custody and have the parental rights of the father revoked.
Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
You can, but eventually the court will question what you are doing.
In Nebraska, a father can sign his parental rights away through the court. By signing his rights away, this does not negate him from paying child support.
Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
Generally you still have to pay child support even though you are giving up your parental rights unless the child is being adopted.
Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
If the father Legally gave up his parental rights - (signed legal papers), then he is no longer legally responsible to pay child support for the child. Did he give up parental rights so you could remove the child from the country? A family member of mine had to have her baby's father sign away his parental rights so he would not have to pay child support when he entered the military. So - once parental rights are signed away Legally, the father has NO obligation to pay child support. You cannot have it both ways - you cannot have him sign away his parental rights, yet still expect him to pay child support.
Their parental rights will depend upon each situation. If the father is good and is paying child support, he should be able to get just as much parental rights as the mother.
Why do you think it necessary if he hasn't?
Rights can be terminated for constructive abandonment.
Unless he has gone to court to get his parental rights, yes.
It's likely that the father will still owe support until/unless the child is adopted. see links

If your asking that if you give up parental rights? If you give up parental rights then no you don't have to pay child support
Yes, but that does not free him from his child support obligations.
Generally no. see links
Giving up parental rights has nothing to do with paying support. As the natural father, you are obligated to support the child the mother will be raising and can be ordered to do so by the court. You made the decisions; the consequences are yours. Think of the child and his or her needs through childhood. Would you want to be left behind because your father didn't want to support you?
