Having a child is a responsibility which you must continue to pay for, rights have nothing to do with it.

if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?


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).


Child support would generally go to the person raising the child. Mother might even be ordered to pay to father.


no the mother should have the legal obligation to take care of the child


No, when a mother or father relinquishes his parental rights he is no longer responsible for child support.


Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -


You can sign your rights away but you will still have to pay child support if you are the father or mother of the child. There is no way to avoid paying child support.


An unmarried father cannot "choose" to not pay child support. The laws in every state require that a father pay for the support of his child. The mother must bring an action to the appropriate court so that a child support order can be established. Visitation rights are separate and a father can have visitation rights established by the court. Visitation rights are not dependent on paying child support.


Yes. And it's not the mother who gets his rights terminated, it is the court.


First, without a court order, the mother cannot prohibit the father from seeing the child. If he has not voluntarily given up his rights to the child, and a judge has not created a custody schedule, the father has as much right to see the child as the mother.Second, if the father does voluntarily give up his parenting rights, or a judge does involuntarily remove his parenting rights (or awards full custody to the mother), the father would still owe child support until his child reaches the age of majority and has graduated high school.


If not married he has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. If married to the mother they have equal rights to the child.


Yes, but only if the father willingly gives up the right to child support in the divorce settlement.



If the father gave up all parental rights - then he would not have to pay child support. Plus, if the mother is out of the country and is an illegal immigrant - she would not be a part of the child support system. She would need to be in this country. But, the main things is - if the father "legally" (signed papers) to give up his parental rights, then he is not liable for child support.


the mother of the child took the father off child support because she was not satisfied with the child support payments.

No he is then the father of the child but in order to get rights he has to go to court and prove paternity first in order to get visitation, custody and pay child support. If married to the mother when the child is born, he is automatically considered the father and have 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.


Yes as the father has become a defaulter then the mother can get full custody and have the parental rights of the father revoked.


He has the right to pay child support and petition for visitation.


Yes the father would still have to pay child support if he did not have custody of the child and the mother did not work.


None of them can sign over anything. They can go to court and ask to have their rights removed and the custodial parent can ask to have the child support stopped but this means she can not get benefits before he has paid.


depends on the state laws but you have visitation rights no matter if you pay support or not...check your laws


Any mother can go to court in the US to claim child support form the father for a child she is caring for. Babies are not born by spontaneous combustion. The father is as responsible for the child's welfare as is the mother. If the child is living with the father and custody given to the father, the mother is liable for child support, too.
