The Michigan Supreme Court affirmed the court of appeals decision in In Re Beck on December 22, 2010, rejecting a father's argument that his obligation to pay child support ended as a matter of law when his parental rights were terminated and that his constitutional right to due process of law was violated by an order that continued his child support obligation.
Because the Beck trial court declined to modify or terminate respondent’s obligation to pay child support, his obligation remains intact, held the Court.
