It was her choice to have an abortion or not and not his.
And she cannot be compelled to place a child for adoption of course.
If this is his child then he has to support this child until the child becomes a financially independent adult.
It's not relevant what she did nor what he wants.
Support is the legal right of the child.
He also has the same rights as any parent to custody or access.
And she cannot take half of what he has.
If the baby lives with her then child support has no affect on his assets.
It's based on his income and the law sets exactly what he must pay.
i see... so she has no right over his house or nothing but whatever contribution he will need to pay for the child will be based on his present salary, correctÉ
She has no rights over his house or any assets.
what if he is not 100% sure he's the dad, since contraception was used and she did admit having sexual intercourse with other men the one time they met?
Support will always be based on his income.
They will need to a paternity test.
If she does not agree the Court will order it.
will she have to request for it for him to pay for child support?
No but he can request it.
so the fact that she may have lied about using birth control will not change anything for him?
Nothing because it's not about her. It's about the baby.
The baby is innocent no matter what.
I see. So the paternity test may pretty much be his only way out of legal fees now that the baby girl is born, am I getting this right?
You mean out of child support, yet.
The only time he would not be liable for support is if another man adopts the baby.
ok. I think that answers most of the questions I had
where can I find more information about child support and paternity tests?
What province is this?
Let me make a couple of suggestions.
You can contact the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be $25.The number is:604.687.3221 or 1.800.663.1919.And you can get some help here too:http://www.ag.gov.bc.ca/family-justice/help/counsellors/index.htmAnd this is a good site to review:http://www.bcfamilylawresource.com/
