Did I read this correct? California Family Law
« on: Jan 26, 2004, 04:41:23 AM »
7822.  (a) A proceeding under this part may be brought where the
child has been left without provision for the child's identification
by the child's parent or parents or by others or has been left by
both parents or the sole parent in the care and custody of another
for a period of six months or by one parent in the care and custody
of the other parent for a period of one year without any provision
for the child's support, or without communication from the parent or
parents, with the intent on the part of the parent or parents to
abandon the child.

Does this mean if our BM does not pay child support for one year we can file abandonment?  I thought it was only true if she didnt contact them as well.

If she did not pay support AND did not contact the child....

But the last sentence:  "with the intent on the part of the parent or parents to abandon the child" ... hopefully Soc will get back to you on that portion of the code.
