His parents will be responsible until he turns 18 years of age. By the time you take him to court, he will probably be of age and it will all be on him, financially and morally. * In most instances, no. The parents could not be held legally or financially responsible in such a situation. Generally the court will spindle any support petition until the minor reaches the age of majority and then review the case, at which time it will be decided if support should be ordered and any arrearages assessed. In all US states the father's paternity must be established when it concerns a child born out-of-wedlock before the court will address any other issues.
