Waiving your rights will most likely not get you out of paying the back support. You owe the money, its the law. Contact the state and see if you can work out a payment arrangement.
Do you some day down the road want to explain to your child, “Yes, I waived all my parental rights to get out of paying my legally due child support. Getting out of paying a debt was more important to me than you were.”
First off, I want to thank all of you that wrote supportive words for me. And for those of you who had not so kind words I guess I need to CLARIFY some things for you. I was married to my high school sweetheart the father of my 12 year old for five years together for eight. My current engagement is my 2nd and last husband. After all that I’ve been through in my life I chose very carefully, while we were planning our Wedding I became pregnant.
We intend complete our family with two children. Now, I understand there are a lot of close minded people in this world but if you put yourself in someoneelse’s shoes for just a moment you may feel a bit more compassion and not be so quick to judge. I purposely didn’t make much comment on the circumstances surrounding the birth of my son and if I had I think you may have a different outlook. My goal is not to bad mouth or take my son’s father away but to do what is my eyes best for him. I have always put my children first. Creating a stable and loving environment for them is my only goal.
We all have our own opinions to which we are entitled to. So to those of you who had harsh words for me I’m sorry you feel the way you do. But I want you to know I do not regret one decision I’ve made in my life for those decision I have learned from, have made me who I am today and have given me two beautiful children. A 12 year old daughter with two families who love her and is an honor roll student and a 3 year old son who also has two families that love him, knows his ABC’s and can count to 43.
Both of my children are loving, compassionate and kind. Good luck to all of you in your individual situations.
