the mother and natural father never officially went through the courts for a child support order. The natural father is willing to give up legal custody to the spouse of the natural mother. The adoption process has not yet taken place
thanks for your response.
Just to make it clear for myself what you wrote below:
"However, if the child was adopted by another party, the biological fathers rights to the child would be terminated along with his financial obligation to support the child. If the child is adopted and the father is going to consent, it can also be added in the court order that there will be no legal right to go after the father for support or obligation for him to pay, since that will be assumed by the new parent."
~So this means if the natural father gives up legal custody to another party he is no longer financially responsible to support the child?
So if the spouse of the natural mother, her husband, whom she is legally married to adopts the child he would assume both legal and financial responsibility from the biological father?
