Hi if a father hasn't had anything to do with their child or paid for their child are they stripped of their parental rights? It's been a year since the father of my child seen him last and been offered as much contact from the start untill he decided not to come see him and then get a solicitor letter written to me because I wouldn't let him have him over night or leave him with him as he couldn't look after him but never stopped him from seeing him anytime at my house

It all depends, does he pay child support? In the state of AZ if it wasn't court order and he stopped seeing him, it was after a year if he pays child support he has to go to court to get visitation, if he already had visitation rights and just stopped seeing your kid he lost all his right and has to go back to court but all this was back when I was a kid it might have changed

it all depends on what area you are in ! I live in Pgh Pa , and My OS father hasn't had any contact with our son in 18 months , No payments NOTHING .... However , custody is something totally separate in the eyes of the courts here ! Technically , He has the same rights as I do ( even though I do all the work and he doesnt do Shi*)

Make sure you know your state Laws ... in my situation I chose to not take my son back over there after many different jail stints ( drugs ,alcohol & robbery) we just decided a few months back that until my son Is old enough to protect himself ,if something happened while over there .. he isnt going !! But , In certain states you actually could be arrested and be considered kidnapping charges ! Be careful band best of luck !
