Best Answer

If you are the biological parent then you must support your child until they reach eighteen years of age. There are very few ways to avoid your responsibility. Consider the following.

  • If you don't have an income source you could petition the court for a temporary modification of the support order. Of course that would only be until your financial situation changes.
  • If you feel that the child is not yours you need to have paternity test taken.
  • Obtain custody of the child.
  • If the childs other parent is married then consider allowing their spouse to legally adopt the child.
