I'M in the same situation. I was told that the spouse is not held responsible for your child even if she is married to your child's father and he isn't supporting the child. Eventually he will get locked up and his license will get suspended.

AnswerNo, you have no legal obligation to support the biological child of your spouse. However, depending upon what state you live in, property owned jointly can be subject to a lien or seizure for back support payments. Whether or not a marriage took place between the biological parents is irrelevant when it pertains to the support of the child/children. That is based on the assumption that paternity was established to the satisfaction of the court or the father voluntarily accepted the parental obligations.

The father of the child (whether he was ever legally married to the child's mother or not) is obligated to pay the child support.

Why does the father still pay if the mother signs off on the child support?

The father should contact the clerk of the court where the support order was enacted for information on how to rectify the situation. Even if the mother has agreed to stop support payments it is not legally binding until the court issues an order stating such. If the father is in arrears he will most likely be obligated to pay the amount before the court considers ending support obligations. Likewise, if the support payments have been made through the state's social services it may not be possible for the mother to or father to engage in the action canceling support obligations.
