Unwanted pregnancy and child support

My friend recently slept with a girl who he had known for a while. They had unprotected sex, and the girl told him that she is going to take the pill. Later they had a small argument and the girl told him "Let's hope that the pill did work". My friend is worried whether he would be forced to pay for child support if the girl indeed gets pregnant and decides to keep the child. He is a student and has no means to pay for child support. Could someone direct me to the laws concerning this?

Thank you.

He will be required to pay.

Why am I thinking about the song, you know, the one with the silver bullet in the lyrics?

Re: Unwanted pregnancy and child support

Tell your friend that even if he is off the hook this time, his stupidity will most likely result in a child if he goes on like this. Also tell him that there are worse things that can happen to him than conceiving a child if he has unprotected sex with someone he barely knows.

I hope the girl is not pregnant. With such idiotic parents, the child will stand no chance!

From the thread linked above, I though that the if the girl is pregnant and keeps the child, the father has to pay

He is telling me that, he had known the girl for sometime and that is why he thought it was "safe"

Re: Unwanted pregnancy and child support

If it is just the one time, I doubt a child has been conceived (I hope not). Sure it can happen but believe me the chance of pregnancy in a month is around 25%.

He told me that he only did it once. I also think that the girl isn't pregnant.

That is quiet high for me to not wear a condom. Dumb people seem to be in the majority everywhere. Hope poor kid does not come into this dumb world with such dumb parents

There's a word for people who have unprotected sex. "Parents".

Re: Unwanted pregnancy and child support

I know of two ways to not pay:
1. Abstain
2. BYOC

It does sound like your friend and this girl are both immature.

Also, it's worth considering that the female oral contraceptive is usually quite reliable so emotional outbursts like "I hope the pill works" are exactly that (as it's not suggesting she stopped taking it).

Like speeding, don't speed and if you do, wait until the confirmation of the offense arrives before flapping about it.

Re: Unwanted pregnancy and child support

So many layers going on here:

1. The baby issue may just be a ploy to make your friend feel guilty or win him back.

2. If she is indeed pregnant, the girl may opt for an abortion as it sounds as if she's not happy with the relationship either. Health insurance usually pays for the abortion.

3. If she wants to keep the baby, then he will indeed have to help support it.

It's basically a waiting game now to see what the girl's next move is.

Actually, no. The science says so but every young person out there thinks they will conceive a baby the minute they have sex and when it comes to really trying to conceive, they are bitterly disappointed.
