Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
There is no legal obligation to exercise visitation or to spend time with the child......it is a parental right but not an obligation.
The mother may attempt to terminate your parents rights.....but hats practically the only serious consequence.
That's possible.....depending on what your income is.
You can calculate what you would be required to pay here: http://csgc.oag.dc.gov/application/main/intro.aspx
Child support in DC lasts until the child reaches 21 years of age. Here's a good link you can read: http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/child-support-in-the-district-of-columbia
The only obligation the court can order is for child support.....and that money can be used for any purpose.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again.
