Child support owed by reportedly reluctant adoptive parent

Husband and wife have now divorced, and the mother claims that the ex-husband is attempting to reverse the adoption in an attempt to not pay child support. She also states that the boy has attempted to contact his father; however, his messages have been blocked. The father currently owes approximately $20,000, and he has been threatened with jail time if he does not pay. The ex-husband is claiming that the adoption was based upon fraudulent information.

When a child is adopted, the adoptive parent becomes that child's parent. In this case, the ex-husband is considered to be this child's father, and he, therefore, owes child support to assist in taking care of the child. Connecticut families who find themselves facing similar child support issues do have legal options available to them.
