Just do it, retain an attorney and do it for your child, he has not paid, why care about that now?
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and I have practiced over 38 years and can be reached at 213-819-1171. I practiced mainly in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. I am not seeking clients from existing relationships with other attorneys, and give only limited advise over the phone (the phone is primarily used to set appointments), these services do not create an attorney client relationship. I apologize for mispelling< as I am a lousy typist, My answers may offend as I do not believe in pulling punches or sugar coating the truth. Further regarding courts in other states my opinions are largely based on logic and what I think is the modern trend which is to consider the needs of the child.
Yes! He will still be ordered to pay child support. The ONLY way a parent can get out of his or her obligation to pay child support is through someone else adopting the child to take his/her place. Even a relinquishment of parental rights will not stop his obligation to pay child support.
