Attorneys should note that in case of abandonment or other situations where one or both of the natural parents are unable to consent, substitute consents are required.

   (2) Any delinquent support payments remain a judgment against the party ordered to pay such support, unless a receipt or satisfaction is filed by the party to whom the support is due.

   (3) Upon completion of the adoption proceedings, an appropriate motion shall be filed together with a proposed order terminating all future support as of the date of the adoption decree. The motion and proposed order shall be accompanied by a copy of the adoptive decree.

Adopted effective January 29, 2000.
