    Post Biological Fatherís Consent to Adoption Not Required Because of No Support

    Biological Fatherís Consent to Adoption Not Required Because of Failure to Provide Requisite Maintenance and Support. In Re Adoption of A.C.B. - These are always interesting and contentious emotional issues. You'd think no support = no right to consent. This was a particularly divisive opinion.

    On February 26, 2019,the Supreme Court of Ohio handed down a merit decision in In re Adoption of A.C.B., Slip Opinion No. 2020-Ohio-629. In a fractured opinion, the Court held that the biological fatherís consent to the adoption in this case was not required because he failed to provide maintenance and support for the child as required by law or judicial decree for one year prior to the filing of the adoption petition. Justice DeWine wrote the lead opinion, joined by Chief Justice OíConnor and Justice French. Justice Fischer concurred in part and concurred in judgment with an opinion. Justice Kennedy dissented, with an opinion joined by Justice Donnelly. Justice Stewart wrote a solo dissent. The case was argued May 7, 2019

    This assumes that the father knew he had a child. But what if he didn't know?

    In this case he knew. He made only one support payment, but had been ordered to pay monthly, plus he moved to another country. I don't think if you really value your offspring that you make little to no effort to support the child or even remain in that child's life.

    Perhaps. So ignore, as is your habit, the possibility that the father did not know he had a child probably because the mother didn't know who the father was, for example. That is not uncommon.

    Reread my post if you are still unclear about my point. Thanks.

    Let the kid fend for himself. Who knows that he wouldn't grow up to be the great American novelist.

    We absolutely could use another Charles Dickens or Mark Twain, but from where is one drawn?

    Perhaps he should have thought about that before having a one night stand? What does he have to object to if he doesn't know he fathered a child? The child deserves to have parents in his or her life.

    Get off your stupid moral high horse before I shoot the nag out from under you.

    Did I say he was "objecting"? To anything? I agree with you that the child deserves to have parents, but that's about it.

    That that $#@! didn't inform the guy that he is the father gives her a great deal of totally invalid power. Indeed, a lot of feminists' illegitimate power comes simply from being born a cum dump with no responsibility. It's probably one reason they end up lesbians.

    Screw her.
