I realize a custodial parent can take children out of state and move, but what if non-custodial parent is up on child support payments, loves the children just as much or more… Custodial parent states that they want to move the children out of state so it will force the non-custodial parent to give up their rights because the kids would be with the custodial parent. In the event of that happening, is the non-custodial parent required to pay child support if they cannot even see the children? yes, there is an agreement and divorce that states the non custodial parent sees the children every other weekend, but if children are moved from the area, non-custodial parent will not be able to do that because of financial hardship and distance and a full time job. This is also being used as a weapon of control against the non-custodial parent. If something happens that the custodial parent is not pleased with regarding how non custodial parent does not respond to the custodial parent, then the non-custodial parent is continually being harrassed and threatened to have the parental rights taken away. Example: Asking for extra time with the children to take them somewhere, cannot have any type of converation with children and ask any questions in person or on the phone abouth things in their life and what food is prepared for them while with non-custodial parent.
Here are the concern of the non-custodial parent.
The non-custodial parent loves the children beyond words and does not want them used as a weapon or a pawn. The children are older. WThe concern is why is the custodial parent pushing so hard to wanting non-custodial parent termination rights ended.
The non-custodial parent wants to figure out how to get out of this mess and if possible, still see their children with peace and no retaliation from the custodial parent as in having “plans” on the weekend of the non-custodial parent visitation time.
The non-custodial parent also wants to know if "forced termination rights’ happen, are you still required to pay child support and not be able to even see your children? What in the name of God is a non-custodial parent supposed to do when they are up against a situation like this? Would it make it easier for the children for the non-custodial parent to terminate rights before being “forced to”? Why would a custodial parent want to “force parental rights” from the non-custodial parent when the non-custodial parent loves the children, always on time with child support payments, always willing to help out custodial parent whenever asked and keeps children when custodial parent is out of town. Please, please help me…
