Probably to the County Social Services Dept. if the kid(s) are in foster homes.
if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Child support would generally go to the person raising the child. Mother might even be ordered to pay to father.
yes, unless/until the child is adopted
It's likely that the father will still owe support until/unless the child is adopted. see links
Yes, until/unless the child is adopted.
If the father terminates his parental rights the single mother can legally and solely have full custody of that child as long as the courts decide that she is capable of working and providing a safe environment for the child. There are times that the parents of the young mother, or possibly grandparents will help in looking after the child if the mother is a minor and finishing her education and the courts will often look favorably on this.
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).
Yes. And it's not the mother who gets his rights terminated, it is the court.
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.
No,the same rules apply wether you are the father or the mother you are not obligated to pay support.
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.
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.
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.
Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
In Missouri, when a father has not had contact with the child for six month, whether voluntary, or denied access, the child can be adopted by a stepparent, without official notice. Simply terminating parental rights also terminates financial responsibility, thus the mother cannot claim support.
He has the right to pay child support and petition for visitation.
1) to pay support; 2) to petition the courts for visitation
If the father does not request a DNA test, the mother holds all of the parental responsibility and rights. The mother cannot request child support. The father cannot request custody or visitation.
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.
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.
If the mother in question is financial able and has shelter and means to support the child then most definitely.
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.
