    then simply keep paying your child support for the child you made with the mother. The child is here because of you. You have an obligation, both legal and moral that does note end simply because you cannot see your child.

    They aren;t like cars or other possessions that since you don;t get to use them, you can sell them or give them away so you do not need to maintain them. This maintainance is until the child grows up.

    What you seek typically never happens. About the only time a fathers can sign off on a child is if there is another father planning on adoption. States do not like to, and almost never will, bastardize children.


    btw; him growing up with the folks you mention has nothing to do with what and if you pay.

    Is there a custody/visitation order in place? If so, did you and/or the court consent to her moving to CA with the child? Have you considered moving to be closer to your child? (it may or may not be a possibility. Keep an open mind).
