My question involves child support in the State of: Texas , Mediator informed me that if I didn't sign voluntary relinquishment of parental rights I would go to jail and lose my rights anyway. My support (amount in arrears) is still growing, and I can still end up in jail. It has destroyed my ability to obtain credit and my ability to earn an income above minimum wage. There was a step parent adoption, and my name was removed from my children's birth certificates. According to the courts I never had children. However AG's office just claimed a $1000.00 check to me. Will I owe the child support even though I was never their Father?
