f stop, given that you clearly know nothing about Polish law, perhaps you might like to stop giving advice?
how about you give your advice, and I give mine, and we each will stop whenever the fvck we choose to??
All right, he pushed a wrong button..
The real question is: does he start throwing the money at the lawyers now, or does he wait for legal action from the mother? He has no idea what has happened in the last 10 years. The child could have been adopted 3 times over. That said,
Harry, as much as I applaud your efforts trying to stomp on racists and anti semites here, you're no more qualified to offer legal advice than I am. To give extreme example of relinquishing parental obligations, I'm sure sperm donors are not obligated to child support, not even in Poland. Most reasonable courts will allow mother to relive the father of parental obligations, if he was no more than a sperm donor, did not want children, she's more than capable of supporting the child, or doesn't want to chase him around when she wants her new husband to adopt the child, etc. etc, the OP says he has one of those papers.
Interestingly, there is a movement, albeit not very popular, that in order for fathers to be responsible for their children, they should be given the same choices at the beginning of pregnancy that mothers have: abortion, adoption or keeping the baby.
So remember Harry, this is a discussion forum, you can offer your own opinions and supporting arguments, but then so can everyone else; right or wrong.
