Re: Unmarried Couple Living In Separate States
that would depend on who files something with their respective states court.
1) Does my situation follow CA or NY law?
that would depend on her seeking support or not.
2) What are my obligations in terms of child support?
Not familiar with same sex adoptions in New York.
3) Her and her partner, is it possible to adopt the kid with my consent or perhaps even sign the birth of certificate together?
4) Can I deny my parental rights which will also affect my parental obligations?
Is she does not claim a specific father, the child will simply not have a father listed. If she wants support from you, you can accept parentage or deny it. If you deny it, she can ask the courts to demand a DNA test if she wants. If you and she do not want to list you as the father and you agree on CS payments, then that is what it is, until somebody tires of the situation and heads to court to make things official.
Or can I deny my parental rights and have a private arrangement with her in terms of a monthly payment?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
