the father and I have a daughter we get SSI for her.
some other parent, a mother, has a child that she kept from this father since its conception in 1999 some time, she has recently gotten child support to establish paternity, and now is applying under the fathers SSI benefit for this other child to get SSI (not getting yet and we are disputing under the circumstances).
Father is relinquishing parental rights in court coming up and/or pressing full charges against this woman for hiding/stealing his child.
We really wanted to know if SSI is for the "lost" support of a parent because of injury or death...doesnt the child have to be a dependent and/or have "lost" support from the parent to be eligible for SSI? Are there income restrictions for the other mother and child, because there is for the father and our child?
No he never had any custody or visitation with the other child. he has never met the other child he has never met the other childs mother..he is determined to never meet them, but he'll have to in court.
cant he relinquish rights under these extreme circumstances of basically involuntary, and now voluntary abandonment. its been well over the 7 years most states require for abandonment (no contact or support at all whatsoever)
They cant legally get him for all 18 years, we know that, especially when he proves he was date rapped by someone he never knew, at a party blacked out, and the crazy lady stole the child, and gave the child a crappy life, which we can also prove in court against her.
thank you so much for your time. unfortunately, paternity has been established by oregon child support. this father unknowingly and unconsiously had sex and now my child (which wouldnt be here today if I knew her dad had a kid he didnt know about) is going to suffer financially because of someone elses decisions to steal and keep secret an entire childs life from the father. the father does have an attorney, she is just slow going and this process is driving us nuts and court is taking forever to set a date!
