    Umm, sorry, but probably not. Most states require that a step-parent be ready to adopt the child in the event that termination of parental rights is granted, and all parties (Mom, Dad, and step) would have to agree to the termination. You cannot unilaterally decide to terminate your rights so you won't have to pay child support. Whether you wanted kids, or not, you got one. (Congratulations on making sure you won't have any more). The courts do not like to leave a child without a legal father.

      No, you cannot terminate your parental rights to get out of paying CS. Unless the mother has a husband who is willing to legally adopt.

      How long ago was the CS order? If it has been a couple of years, you can file to modify the amount.

        I live in ky and my ex was able to terminate his rights and I was single living with my mom. No man lined up to adopt. He just signed the agreement to terminate the rights based on abandoment. so, this must vary depending on where you live so you may want to check your state. My child was 15mths, and i got rights terminated and a name change, all at the same time. They rule based on whats best for the child. If you have abandoned the child, it would be best for your rights to be terminated as long as you and the other parent agree.

          Is there any way that they would be able to "extend" your payments for a year?
          Sure, that is only if YOU can figure out how YOUR child can go for a year without food, clothes, medical care, etc.

          All you need to get your DL back is a measly $500.00. If you cannot come up with that small amount, you obviously cannot pay ANYTHING for CS. So, it comes down to this- come up with $500 by selling antything or everythiong you own and make regular CS payments OR- go to jail and stay there. It's really very simple.

          BTW- You never answered my question- when was the order done, and why haven't you filed to modify it?

            When I mentioned about the year thing- I was giving you the same statement and belief that both the laws, CSE and Judge's have. In other words- a dose of reality.

            From your post I thought that you said you needed a DL so that you can get a job and get back and forth to work. Now according to this post, you are already working, so your complaint about the DL won't work with CSE or the court.

            Yes, $500 is alot of money, however in comparison to what you MIGHT owe, it is a very small amount to get your DL back. And hell yes, I do know what it's like to not have alot of money- my husband was earning only $1,100.00 a month before taxes- paid $450.00 in CS and $700.00 a month for heart and BP meds, we lived on welfare and food stamps and he had to go wothout meds at times. It was extremely difficult and unfair, but we both saw the reality that we had no other choice.

            If you make very little, you need to pay your CS (to keep your DL) and live with friends or relatives, or in a mission until you can get the CS modified.

              You STILL haven't answered the question about when the CS order was done and why haven't you filed for a modification????

                As to the modification, you obviously have access to a computer and an online account. NC cse has the forms, calculators, and instructions online to modify cs. You don't need to drive anywhere. So check and see if your state has this.

                The fact is (as harsh as this sounds) you have gotten yourself into a situation that is wholly your responsibility. You need to be proactive and do the things that YOU need to do and stop making excuses why everything is going against you. If they base the cs on the income you were making in the past, that means that the court reasons that you are capable of making that now. That's how the court deals with parents that are purposely unemployed or underemployed for the purpose of getting out cs.

                No, you will not be able to stop support payments for a year. No matter what you did, do, or will do, you still have a responsibility to financially provide for your child.

                  1. I did not say (or mean to imply) that YOU were unemployed or purposely underemployed. I only stated WHY a judge would order the amount of cs based on a past income.

                  2. I will not start the argument about how responsible each person is in a situation with an unplanned pregnancy. You both are responsible. Her irresponsibility does not cancel your obligations.

                  3. You're equal rights were to not have sex with her, or have a vasectomy prior to the sexual encounter. That's the nature of biology and reproduction. Sorry.

                  4. Did you check into the online modification?

                  5. You are the one that has put yourself in the position of facing prison, therefore putting you even farther behind on CS. In the future, you need to think more about any results your actions may produce.

                    I just realized that I had responded to your other post on the criminal board. Is the mother of the child the same woman accusing you of stealing the $8800? If so, you need to get far, far away from this woman.

                      In that case, you should stay away from women all together until you can exercise better judgement.

                      Alot of states are implementing work programs for parents that didn't pay their child support. When a parent is in court for failure to pay, the #1 excuse they use to try and stay out of jail is, "but I can't pay anything if I'm in jail."

                      Most of the time, they aren't paying anyway. That's how they ended up in court. Judges are now getting more choices in cases such as this. Basically, the parent is sentenced to jail and the state "hires" them to do work that would otherwise be outsourced. The money earned goes to pay off their child support arrears and a small portion goes back to the state for room and board. Since the parent is in state custody, 100% of their wages can be garnished as opposed to the normal limits.

                        That is not the courts concern. The court is only concerned with the CHILD subject to the court order. The way they will look at it is the family members you are helping out are adults and able to help themselves. YOUR first responsibility is to your child. If you do not live up to your responsibilities on your own, the state will do whatever they can to "help" you.

                          well they need to stop giving me that kind of "help" cause i have a younger brother that is mentaly retarded that i help take care of and the state will not help us with him cause they say he can work sure he could if you want to risk him getting mad and putting his fist through somebody's face. if they want to help me they can let me drive to work and back so i can get the better job and pay the g-dam cs.cause right now my family needs the money more than the kid does
                          The kid IS your family. The kid IS also your #1 obligation. You were partially responsible for bring the child into the world. You are NOT responsible for your brother or any other family members being born.

                          Driving is a privilege, not a right. There are countless alternatives to driving that you can use to get to your job. If I don't have a car, that doesn't mean I can just do nothing and b*tch about it while the kids fend for themselves. If I did, I end up in jail for neglect. Why do you feel as if it should be different for YOU?

                            If this is the attitude you plan on having in court, start stocking up on cigarettes no so you will have something to bargain with when you go to jail.

                              Your story is not in any way, shape or form unique. The judge hears the same thing dozens of times EVERY MONTH. The comments HERE will seem very caring and understanding compared to what the judge will say to you if you try and use ANY of the excuses you have mentioned here.
