    Child support does not have anything to do with marital status. Is he on the birth certificate? Do you have a custody arrangement? I advise you start a custody action as soon as possible.

    I agree with both attorney above. However, I think that the emphasis should be drawn heavily on why you want to terminate his rights and if that is a good idea or not. As the other attorney noted, as long as his rights are not terminated he is obligated to pay child support. Even if he isn't paying support today it may be collected from him in the future. However, if there is a safety issue with father then please seek a family law attorney in Nevada as soon as possible and Mr. Willick's...

  8. Can a mediation agreement be cancelled or changed once signed. Our session covered child support and time sharing.

    Let me start with clarifying that I'm not a Florida attorney. However, the premise of mediation is that it is a form of settlement. I would contact your mediator and find out if you can come to the table again. Reach out to the opposing party and let them know your concerns. If you reached settlement once perhaps the opposing party will still work with you without litigation.
