No. The father of the pregnant daughter has no legal obligation to support her child. That responsibility belongs to the biological father of the unborn child assuming that the pregnancy is not terminated nor the child placed for adoption or parental rights terminated by the court.
If she is married, no. If she is unmarried, yes.
The father of the unborn child is obligated to pay child support once parentage is established through the voluntary acknowledgement of the male or by an order of the court. The father of the pregnant daughter has no legal obligation to support her child, but does have a legal obligation to support her until she reaches the age of majority for the state in which she resides or the terms of a standing child support order are completed, amended or rescinded.
Yes. In addition, he could also be ordered to pay additional support for the grandchild.
He can't avoid court ordered child support.
not if she moved out of the mothers house
a pregnant daughter.
No, an obligated parent is only responsible for the support of his or her own biological or adopted child. The father of a pregnant minor is not financially responsible for her unborn child. However, the father of the unborn child is responsible for its support, even if he is a minor. The individual circumstances and the laws of the state will determine the extent of his obligations.
He can still be ordered to pay. But, if you were the father, than nothing.
Only the pregnant female can legally make decisions regarding the baby. She and the father are the ones deciding what will happen after birth. You have the right to support her as before. The father and your daughter will have to pay for their child. So basically nothing has changed for you regarding your rights.
If he is paying you directly - and it was ordered by the court - you will have to go to court to file a motion for contempt with the judge that ordered the support payment. Once that has been adjudicated, you will probablay be able to get an order to garnish his salary (if employed) or to place a lien against him or his property.
Father of the Bride part 2?
Yes, if you feel the need to not support your daughter and take away from her.
No and No.This is ludicrous at the very best. The father is paying child support because of a court ordered decree when he and his ex-spouse ended their marriage. The father continues paying until the daughter attains the age of 18. To expect the 16 year old boy (also a child in a legal sense) to pay child support is ridiculous and beyond belief.
No. Child support is an active order of the court and the obligated parent should not cease paying as ordered regardless of the change of circumstances. To do so would leave the obligated parent in a position to be charged with contempt of a standing court order and subject to penalties including the possibility of incarceration.
If the divorce ordered the father to pay support, he owes that support until/unless the order is modified.
No she is not pregnant. She already has a daughter named Coco. Coco's father is David Arquette.
Yes, the father of the child is obligated to provide support.
Your child's conduct is not an issue in paying child support. Not all kids make good decisions, but they still deserve support. You may be successful in having the support order modified to pay it directly to your daughter.
It depends. Assuming the courts have ordered child support, then not paying child support violates that order and the father can be arrested.
Unless the daughter is still living with her mother, the father might be able to get the court to terminate support on the grounds that the daughter is emancipated.
You can't. Child support is court ordered and family services handles payments. The money is to support children your father has produced. It is his obligation to pay the support.
Yes. Arrears associated with court ordered child support can be pursued.Yes. Arrears associated with court ordered child support can be pursued.Yes. Arrears associated with court ordered child support can be pursued.Yes. Arrears associated with court ordered child support can be pursued.
Yes of course. Pregnancy does not emancipate her and you are obligated to care for her until she is 18. She and the father will have a hard enough time to support the child, they do not need to support themselves.
