Mr. Brinkmeier is not entirely correct. First of all, when parental rights are terminated, there is no future child support obligation. In Idaho, however, termination when petitioned without an accompanying petition for adoption must be reviewed by the Department of Health and Welfare, and in these circumstances termination will not be recommended. The taxpayers simply have enough children to support already.
Regarding the birthing expenses, the obligation as between the two bio-parents may be allocated by a magistrate in a paternity action, but even then both parents are liable to the creditor, and the creditor is free to collect wherever it can. In other words, the creditor is not bound by the allocation.
