My family keeps lying to and about me to gain custody of my child, I want to give up my rights to said child so he will not have to be in the middle of all the fighting but I'm afraid that they will find a loophole to go after me for child support, can this happen?
Way more info is needed here.
Consult with a local family law lawyer.
This response does not create any attorney-client relationship. Only a signed written agreement can do that. This answer is only in relation to the facts presented and may change according to unidentified facts. Always consult with an attorney.
I wouldn't categorize having to pay child support as a loophole. Consult with a local attorney, but absent this being part of an adoption or CPS coming in because you are a danger to the child, I do not believe you just get to walk away from your legal responsibilities. You might let the child live with others and have no contact, but that won't change your legal obligation to support the child.
It sounds as you do not wish to do this, and so perhaps you should not give into the pressure. Short of seeking guardianship or calling CPS on you, your family cannot force you to give up this child.
TO ALL QUESTIONERS: I provide this answer in an effort to assist and guide. The answers are qualified further by you providing the full and complete facts and background or not, and by the space limitations of this forum. The answer does not serve as a substitute for a live sit-down with an attorney. In no way is any answer to be construed as a formal giving of legal advice nor is an attorney-client relationship formed. You are not permitted to quote or refer to answers given in any court pleading or hearing. TO QUESTIONERS FROM WV & NY: Although I am licensed to practice in your state (in WV, on inactive status as of 9/13), be advised that I practice on a day-to-day basis in Massachusetts. I answer questions in your state in areas of the law in which I practice, and in which I feel comfortable trying to offer you assistance based on my knowledge of specific statutes in your state and/or general principles applicable in all states. Being licensed to practice there, does not confer detailed knowledge of local procedures and practices which comes from day-to-day work. It is always best, however, to work with attorneys and court personnel in your own area to deal with specific problems and factual situations.
