Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
Yes. A father can give up their rights to a child at any age. However, legally they are still obligated to pay child support unless you drop the case completely. They are also legally obligated to pay back child support unless you drop that. Also, although they give up their rights legally to the child, in the eyes of the law, they are still the father. This means that the law can still go after them for child support if they want to.
There must be a court order terminating parental rights. A person cannot sign over their rights to another -- the law does not recognize such a procedure. Until the court issues an order, the father has retained their parental rights, and child support payments will need to continue according to the court order. If parental rights are terminated, there are no child support payments required
Yes as the father has become a defaulter then the mother can get full custody and have the parental rights of the father revoked.
Even if you've given up parental rights, you'll still have to pay child support if it's been determined that you are the biological father. Child support is not payment to see the child. It's designed to help the primary custodial parent support the child in a single parent household.
If the court approves, yes. You still have to pay child support though.
Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
By petitioning the family court in your parish of residence for the same. Termination of rights does not terminate child support obligations.
Single father has none until court order, regards of child support order. see link
Relinquish his rights, yes; however, doing so will not terminate his child support obligation.
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 the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?
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.
