Another Dad Loses His Baby in Adoption Scam
I am sure that I posed the question on Glenn’s blog “How on earth is the dad responsible for child support payments to the adoptive parents?” [but apparently it has been “Sacksed”] I would like to follow that up with “Why is the mother not responsible when she is the party who gave the child up for adoption without the fathers consent or knowledge?”
I am posting this here because I believe that it deserves further discussion and Glenn has closed the blog.
Jenna answered me with:
The article didn’t mention child support at all. Perhaps Glenn was looking at a few articles about this and one mentioned child support if he got partial custody. He should not have to pay anything, of course. Once your parental rights are terminated, how could you possibly be made to pay anything?
My answer to this is, that is EXACTLY MY POINT and that she needs to read more carefully as we all do at times because it is clearly stated here
5) According to this story the father apparently has to pay child support to the adopted couple to raise the child he should’ve been allowed to raise. So he gets the financial responsibility for his child without having any parental rights to his child–what a cynic might call one of the core principles of modern family law.
