My question involves child support in the State of: Maryland
Back in 2007 I had a one night stand.
In Sept 2011 I received a call stating "We have a court date" I went online and looked up some info, and apparently she had a baby, and also had 3 other men tested. all their results were negative so she ordered a paternity test for me.
I took it and a few days later i found out that I have a 4 year old by a woman i dont even know!
As soon as the results came back she turned the courtroom into an episode of maury yelling "baby father this and baby father that"
she had to be removed from the court for causing a scene.
I was told that I would have to pay my support to the state of Maryland since she received public housing and Temporary Cash Assistance.
seeing as how we have never dated, gone out on date knew NOTHING about each other
We are from two different worlds, Im a senior in college looking to make my way to grad school and she has 3 kids by 3 three diff men!
A few days later we spoke and both agreed that i could terminate my rights.
Now i need to know HOW
I've heard that the child has to be adopted
Please help, What are my options? I dont want any part of this AT ALL!
I had NO AGENCY in regards to her pregnancy, Now Im the bad guy because I'm not willing to put my life on pause and becoming a parent at her convience!?
