Thank you so much for your time, especially on a Saturday.
I just have a few more questions:
1. What is the statute code the father can reference in order to terminate parental rights? What is the legal process he must follow in order for this to occur? Does this protect the father from the mother, or grandmother, from suing him further?
2. What is the standard percentage of income used to calculate child support? Is it calculated on gross income or adjusted income? Does it vary based on tax bracket?
3. The mother is married to another man, and has been since the time of pregnancy, and is still married to him after the birth of the child. How does this influence the case?
4. A $15 over the counter paternity test
was used by the grandmother (father's mother) to help her establish paternity - with the desire for the father of the infant to be her own son rather than the husband of the mother. It was purchased over the internet. Does this type of test hold up in the court of law? I am unaware of the details of the marriage
between the mother of the infant and her husband. I also do not know if the husband has already taken a paternity test.
