I somehow hooked up with a ex girlfriend and I really do not to be apart of the kids life AND I don't want to pay for the kid. I wanted the girl to have an abortion but she said no matter what she wants to take me to court for my money and make the baby a part of my life. I do not want the kid and don't want anything to do with it whats so ever so what should I do? Is there any way out?
She can't make you be a part of the baby's life, but she certainly can enforce child support. Insist on a paternity test. Not being the baby's father would be your only way out of child support. I suggest retaining a lawyer to make sure the child support award is appropriate.
I agree, you need to hire an attorney and ask for a paternity test. If the child is determined to be yours, you cannot be forced to be part of your child's life. But, you will be required to help support your child financially. Kind regards.
My answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Please consider hiring an attorney.
The only way out is to prove that the child isn't yours. If the child is yours, you will (eventually) have to pay child support. You cannot sign away your rights (unless she gets married and her Husband wants to adopt the child).
I agree with the prior attorney's, child support and timesharing/visitation are two distinct issues. Even if you never see the child you will be ordered to pay support. Yes to the prior attorney's that you need a paternity test if you are unsure. If you already have been established under law to be the Father, you may have the ability to do a de-establishment of Paternity if the paternity test reveals you are not the father. Last, there is one other way, if Mother ever marries, she may want her new husband to be the Father of the Child through a step-parent adoption, so keep your address current with the Court, or if you are still talking with Mother and she is married, suggest a step parent adoption.
