  • Can a father give up his rights to get out of paying child support cause he cant afford it?

    He has a baby on the way from another woman and he has to take care of them.

    Clinton’s Answer

    Generally speaking, the Court will not merely terminate a father's rights to a child simply because he wants out of his obligation for paying child support. There are a number of factors the Court must consider in making a ruling to terminate, and the Court must ultimately find that termination is in the best interest of the child. If other factors beyond those listed in your facts are at play - factors which would demonstrate that it's not in the best interest of the minor child that the child have an ongoing relationship with the father - then the Court would be more inclined to grant a termination.

    Under Texas Law, if one party wants to end a marriage with a divorce, the Court will divorce you - regardless of any pleas by the other spouse that you stay married. The fact that your spouse has been in prison for such a lengthy time or won't sign papers won't impede the process. The judicial system has mechanisms to handle non responsive spouses.

    You may want to retain the services of a Private Investigator to help ascertain the whereabouts of mom and her current husband. Sometimes a little money spent in that area can go a long way. PIs have access to certain databases and other information not readily available to the public. A good one is Duane Krueger of Krueger and Associates in Dallas, Texas.
