First off you have to ask yourself why you were forced to give up your parental rights. If you gave no indication of helping to support that child, (not accusing you here) but were into drugs, served prison time, etc., these are good reasons for having these parental rights taken away from you. If you did none of the above and you really wanted to be part of your child's life please seek legal counsel and start fighting for these rights. Yes, you can be forced to pay child support even though you don't have parental rights. This is your child and you should want to help pay for the care of raising your child. If you don't trust the mother as to how she spends the money to send, then you can have papers drawn up by a lawyer stating that you want to see all receipts as to how the mother is spending the money for that child.

Generally you still have to pay child support even though you are giving up your parental rights unless the child is being adopted.

If the court approves, yes. You still have to pay child support though.


If you sign over your parental rights in Alabama do you still have to pay child support?

I don't believe you ever have to pay child support if you relinquish your parental rights. But why would you do that though? It's a win-lose situation. If you are no longer the child's legal parent, you could lose a lot of your rights, like visitation rights.


Can biological father sign parental rights to child maternal grandmother even though grandmother and child not in the same home?

Only the courts can grant custody/parental rights. In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.


How does your child's father sign over his rights even though he is not on the birth certificate?

Paternity must be established before any discussion of parental rights. In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

Can a father sign his rights over without someone adopting?

Yes, a father can be allowed by the court to give up his parental rights even when the child is not up for adoption. This means he will still have to pay child support though. If you mean he would sign his parental rights over to another man, no. There would still be a mother in the picture and she would be the only one with parental rights.

Can one relinquish their parental rights without the consent of the custodial parent?

Depending on where you live, it's possible (although probably unlikely) that a judge will allow you give up your parental rights without the consent of the custodial parent. You will still have to pay child support though.


In Ky my parental rights were terminated four years ago now I get a letter in the mail where the courts want me to pay child support can the courts do this I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TO REGAIN MY RIGHTS?

Even if your parental rights have been terminated, your obligations do not necessarily end at the same time. The state of Kentucky can compel you to pay child support, even though you are not allowed to visit your child. Many times a good family court lawyer can help you with such a situation, especially if you want to regain your parental rights.


In KY if your parental rights were terminated four years ago against your wishes All of a sudden you have been petitioned to appear in court to pay child support can the courts do this?

In most states you can be compelled to pay child support even though your parental rights have been terminated. Only if the child is adopted by a step parent or a new family will your financial obligations cease.
