Consent to Jurisdiction for child support
by Francisco "VIP Member"..........................
Me and my baby's mom conceived a baby in Nevada and she then moved to Oregon. She now filed for Child Support and a paternity test. Oregon's caseworker says that I have to give them consent for jurisdiction in Oregon. Since the baby lives in Oregon do I have to consent to their jurisdiction or can we go through Nevada jurisdiction?
The note they sent me says "If you do not give consent or do not respond, the Oregon CSP will not proceed and will send information to the State of Nevada for legal action." What exactly does this mean? Does it mean it will end up going through Nevada jurisdiction or they'll just force me to go through Oregon jurisdiction? Thanks.
