  • terminating parental rights Virginia

    My son is 2 and his father has never seen him due to the fact that he left for California right after I found out I was pregnant. He does send child support but that is the extent of his parenting. How do I go about terminating his parental rights? He will not relinquish them voluntarily.

    Since he is paying child support, it is unlikely to happen.

      So, even though he will probably never come out here to see him, he still has a right to him?

        Sure, he's the father.

          How is that not considered abandonment?

            Oftentimes, if the parent is still paying child support, they don't consider it abandonment.

              So, he can go and get visitation rights and have my son come out there and there is nothing I can do to stop it?

                Your son is 2. The father is not likely to get visitations in CA. How would your son get there, alone? He can request for visitations in YOUR state, and they'd likely be supervised, at first. But, yes, he will be allowed to exercise his rights as a parent.
