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...

Sad to say, the law provides that you still owe child support, even if your rights have been terminated. Without the specifics, it is impossible to advise you on what your options are...give us a call and we will see if we can help.

She has full custody. And how would be go about getting off paying her child support?

Brian Boeheim

Hire an attorney to file a motion for modification of child custody and child support. It will be necessary anyway, once your son reaches 18 years old to make the Court and other agencies aware he has reached the age of majority.

Q: Child support

A person has 2 college degree and is working on a 3rd. Is fully capable of working but is choosing not to in order to get more child support. Is there something that can be said in a modification hearing about the lack of trying to support herself and their child?

Brian Boeheim
Brian Boeheim answered on May 17, 2020

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 »

Q: What happens at a disposition hearing, is the case resolved (Final decree entered) and closed, or dismissed to refile?

Brian Boeheim answered on May 15, 2020

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 »

Q: My question involves a family issue from Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, if a man and woman are married, and the wife has a child that turns out not to be the husbands, is he required by law to pay child support for the child that isn't his?

Pete David Louden
Pete David Louden answered on May 13, 2020

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.

Q: Is the final monthly child support payment prorated to the last day of school or due in full for the month school ends

School is out mid-May. Graduation is late June. How should the final payment be handled?

Pete David Louden
Pete David Louden answered on Apr 28, 2020

You will need to review your support order. Most of the time the order will state the due date as the 1st day of the month. If child graduates in June then the June 1 payment would be made as usual.

He needs to file a petition to remove himself from the acknowledgement of paternity. We ahem done several of these lately. In some way this is straightforward, but there are some serious pitfalls if you are not careful.

First, at 18 years of age you are no longer under the order of the Court, so you can live where you want. If you can't wait, then have your mother's attorney ask for a guardian-at-litem to be appointed to advise the court as to what is in your best interest. If you are in Tulsa County... Read more »
