I am unsure where you see anywhere in my post that I am "demanding" the past support be erased in exchange for signing away my parental right. The question was whether in so doing would it also affect my past owed support because the document makes no mention of it.. The answers I have been seeing is that it does not. I'll still owe. Which makes sense to me, actually.
I've never fallen behind in the past 11 years. I was a combat medic in Iraq for almost 2 years when my enlistment in the Guard ended. When I got home I took some time to myself, and that is what caused me to fall behind. Was it right to do, no. Did it affect the child, no; his step-dad is loaded and the boy didn't hurt for anything. Will the past support be paid, most certainly. Again, I am not squabling over it, was just unsure about it because there was no mention in the document.
Thanks for all the input, everybody.
