Make a motion to terminate your support, effective March of 2018. Ask for a child support audit to determine the arrearage and make sure it is now all being credited against arrears.

I’d give it another three weeks or so before doing anything. It usually takes about 4-6 weeks for those to be transmitted and set in place.

Child support will likely be based on the state where he is now located, although if you are in Kentucky, I would highly recommend you transferring it there rather than Va. You do not have to wait until after your deployment.

Q: How to terminate parental rights? How to give up unborn child?

Timothy Denison's answer
It would not be easy unless the mother consented to the TPR or unless she had some one willing to adopt him. He really needs to consult a local attorney who can help him with this decision. The ultimate decision will be up to the judge but his chances for termination go way up if mother approves and/or someone is willing to adopt the child.

Q: Child support.

Timothy Denison's answer
If the child is his, there is no way to just make her go away short of terminating his parental rights(if that is even possible). If the child is his, he will have to pay child support unless the mother does not pursue it (which is highly unlikely). It should not cause a moving issue for him or you, you will simply have to deal with it long distance.
