celtics22 : Here is my situation. I'm nineteen years old, I live in Texas and I just found out that I am pregnant. I am not married to the father. The father, up until the point of me telling him that I am pregnant, had led me to believe that he was separated from his wife and that they were in the process of getting a divorce. Well, when I told him I was pregnant he confessed that he is actually happily married AND he has a child with this woman. This man has been straight up lying to me about pretty much everything this whole time! He then proceeds to say that he wants to sign off (or terminate I guess) all his parental rights because he wants nothing to do with this situation. I think he thinks this is a way of getting out of having to pay child support. This left me scared and confused because to my understanding if they terminate their rights that means that they do not have to pay child support. This scares the crap out of me because there is no way I can support this child without some financial assistance.
I called Harris county Attorney Generals office and the person I spoke to said that he cannot simply choose to relinquish his rights and that he doesn't have any say in it, because it's up to the state. And even if he wanted to it would have to be after the baby is born and we both have to consent. In addition, some law q&a websites have stated that parental rights are only relinquished in extreme cases, or when the custodial parent is getting married and the child is being adopted by the person the custodial parent is marrying. Is this correct information?
Also, I called the Child support office to try to file, and they told me I have to wait until after the baby is born to file (for paternity reasons), is that true, or is there some way I can get around that? My fear is that he will find some way to get out of having to pay any child support before I have time to file. I'm super scared and nervous about this whole situation, he has really done me wrong.Both of my parents are dead so it's not like I have someone to run to for help. I do not rely on anyone else for financial support, I am literally all I've got. I am already struggling financially as it is. The father knows this and simply does not give a damn.
Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

aliefique : I want to go to California next summer (June) for 4 days. I realize it's still to early to book a flight (on Southwest Airlines, I've already looked on the website) but I was wondering if someone could give me a rough estimate of how much it could potentially cost to fly from San Antonio Airport in Texas to John Wayne Airport in California? I need to know how much I have to start saving up for! Any help is appreciated, thanks.

csyez011 : I'm not sure from San Antonio but I fly from LAX (Los Angeles) to DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth). $277 non stop round trip American Airlines :)

I would say to save about $300-$350 just to be safe

MAjaleesa : Hello, I am travelling from India to JFK, New York on 30-Aug and I need to go to Harrisburg, PA.

I will be travelling with my wife and carrying around 80 Kg of luggage.

Is Amtrak feasible option with this much luggage?
Is there any CAB facility that can take me from JFK, NYC to Harrisburg, PA?

Please advise.

Invoixene : Definitely use Amtrak
Exit baggage claim at JFK , find a uniformed taxi dispatcher and tell him that you need a cab to Penn Station . The fare cited below is for the ride and not the number of passengers
"Flat Fare from John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport:
For trips between (to and from) Manhattan and JFK International Airport, the flat fare is $52.00 plus any tolls using Rate Code 2 on the meter. A NY State Tax Surcharge of $.50 will be added to each trip."
The EZ Pass toll on the Queens Midtown Tunnel is $ 5.33
Give yourself an hour to get from JFK to Penn

emibegomSit : I agree AmTrak is a good option, and the description of how to get to the train station in the first answer is good. However, there is also a train from JFK to Penn Station.

It's too far to take a taxi.

If you want to rent a car then any travel agency can help you with the reservation. You can also book the car through your airline or via a rental agency website (Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, etc.).

Check to see if you need an "International Driving Permit" in addition to your national license to rent a car. Many car agencies require an IDP even when the national license is in English.

Make certain the rental car is > fully insured < for the whole time you will have it.

Finally, ask your international airline about flying from JFK to Harrisburg instead of driving or taking the train. You apparently have to change planes (no non-stop flights) but it may be easier than driving or taking the train.

2qot54rt74o : I agree about Amtrak, but you can take the Airtrain from JFK to the Jamaica Long Island Railroad Station, and from there you can get a train to Penn Station--it will take about 20 minutes. At Penn Station, go upstairs one level to Amtrak.
Amtrak does offer a checked baggage service. You won't have to carry all your bags onto the train. Could be a little difficult with the LIRR getting to Penn Station. You certainly can get a cab at JFK to Penn Station, but it will be somewhat expensive.

ntonioKulman : Ticket prices change every day, at least. First, you need your schedule, then just start shopping.

Artfooter : I recommend Delta and probably American too. Don't fly on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, airports are busy then. Try to book 9, 10, 11 AM or 4, 5, 6 PM
