When parental rights are terminated that terminates rights, not obligations. Child support is still paid unless/until the child is adopted. If there is an adoption that stops support. If there is not an adoption support continues.
You should have an attorney review your case so they...Read more »

A matter of fact, one of the criteria the judge may take into consideration is the ability of the parent to earn money and they can estimate the amount that person could make if they were to work. This tends to be in cases where it can be shown that the person is avoiding work when it is available...Read more »
Not really sure what you mean by a disposition hearing. If there is an agreed decree then a disposition hearing is nothing more then the Judge taking testimony that a divorce is what everyone wants. If there is any type of dispute to property, custody, or spousal support then it will be a trial....Read more »
If a child is born during the marriage, the husband is considered by law to be the father and will be on the hook to support the child. There is a very specific procedure and specific time limitations to solve this problem. Contact an attorney today, not tomorrow, to review your case.
