Child custody/support obligations are governed by state statutes. Generally speaking any parent who reliquishes permanent custodial obligations is also relieved of monetary obligations. That, however is contingent on the laws of your state and the ruling of the court.

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.

Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.

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

How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?

User Avatar

Signing rights away will not stop any child support from being taken from the father. If the child is the fathers then he is financially responsible for the child weather he has rights or not.

Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

As you have now given up your rights to the child you do not have to pay back child support.

User Avatar

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.

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

Termination of parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.

He is still the father with/without child support and has rights. Take him to court to get the child support and make arrangements for your move to a different state.

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

No. He can sign over his rights but he would still be liable to pay child support. The only time he doesn't have to pay child support is if a stepdad wanted to adopt the child, then the biological father doesn't have to pay child support if he signs his rights away.

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).

User Avatar

Only if the child is adopted. Otherwise signing your parental rights away means you will still pay child support.

User Avatar

Depends on your state, but courts say child support and visitation are two totally different subjects and are not considered together. Father has visitation rights irrespective of whether or not he pays child support.

User Avatar

Visitation rights should have been addressed at the time the child support order was issued. Child support and visitations are two separate issues. The father must return to the court that has jurisdiction and request a visitation schedule.

User Avatar

He has the right to petition for custody and child support.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

Yes, a father can give up his parental rights but he still have to pay child support.

NO, YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS TO THE CHILD AFTER SIGNING AWAY PARENTAL RIGHTS
