I have a question about the father of my son signing away his parental rights. I got pregnant and we are not married. We resided in Virginia. He says he did not want any more children but here is our son. He did not/would not sign the b.c. It was an abusive relationship so I left when our son was 3 months old and moved home with my parents in Oregon. Before I left, I filed for child support. We went back and forth on the phone, texting, emails, "baby come home" blah blah...Obviously I did not go. He went to court today for paternity and child support and has continued the case because he is getting a lawyer. He has cut off communication 100% and has never asked about our son except when prompted. Why would he want a lawyer when it is him being asked if he is the father and determining child support? I thought he was because he wants to sign away rights becuse he does not want to pay c.s. for a child he thinks he will never see. I never said he could not have visitation. Weather or not he wants that I do not know. Maybe he is going to sue for custody too I thought. Anyway, my question is, can he sign his rights away without proving paternity and not pay because he dsnt want to pay and because he thinks he will not see the child? I believe he wants nothing more to do with us ever and will try and prove anything to get out of this. He KNEW I wanted a baby and that I was not on b.c and he did nothing to protect himself. Also, when we would fight I did text him that I wanted him to sign them away...did I hang myself???? I will not sing a paper stating I will if that has to be legalized.
