I am sorry to hear about the situation. You could talk to a caseworker who could explain the reason. Often people will have life insurance to insure support or you might be able to make a claim against the estate if probate is a possibility.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. If your name is on the birth certificate or the child was born during a marriage with her, you are the presumed father.

Petioner has admitted to lying in court about his employment and refuses to pay child support. He is also unemployed and does not have the funds to support our son. He is also filing his 6th motion to get child support terminated as well.

My son and I live in Nebraska and his mother lives in Colorado where we were divorced. He is now at the age where he doesn't want to go visit on the one weekend a month that he is supposed to go. All they do is argue when he is there.
The parenting time plan is what the court order specifies. If you feel that a change is in his best interests, you can request a modification. There is no time where a parent can allow a child to violate a court order due to age.
