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.

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.

If a 16 old girl is pregnant does her father stop paying child support to the mother and can the 16 year old collect child support from the boyfriend in the state of kansas boyfriend is 18yrs old?

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.
