Q: I am currently going through court for child support. Just looking for advice about parental rights.
Currently going to court for child support. Biological father did not show to first court date. Next court date in December. Just looking for advice to possibly persue parental rights
A: If you are just going for child support you will have to present some information to the court as to what his income is and what your income is. they will also need to know cost of daycare if any, cost of insurance for the child/children only, and if there are any extraordinary medical expenses for the child. With all of that information the court will calculate what the child support will be. if you dont know how much he makes it would help if you at least knew what he does for work.
