If I have full custody and the father has virtually no

Customer Question

If I have full custody and the father has virtually no rights (he stopped showing up to court during our custody battle 5 years ago), if we were to marry would he then be absolved of his responsibility to pay child support and be the legal guardian should something happen to me/death or medical emergency?

My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and for using justanswer.com. Are you speaking about marrying the father or someone else? Is the father still the legal parent of the child?
