If an unmarried woman gives a child up for adoption does the father have first claim on the child and if he does take custody is the mother obligated to pay child support?
Answer Yes, the father does get first claim, in order for the child to be adopted by someone else, he needs to give up his legal rights as a father to the child.… If you fully give up the child for adoption, to him, then he can not make you pay child support, but if he takes custody only, then yes you may be instructed to pay child support. He does not need to adopt to get custody. But he may stop you from giving up your child, by claiming he supports the child financially, and does not wish to terminate parental rights, but also does not wish look after the child himself.Get a lawyer and discuss this with him.

No, you are the guardian of the child even as a minor. No one canmake you do anything unless you prove to be a unfit parent.Yourfather or even the father of the child can not …make you give up thechild for adoption. Answer2: Your father cannot make you give up your baby. What he maybe is overwhelmed and anxious that his child is having a child. Hemay be anxious as to whether you can finish school, whether he hasto help financially to take care of the baby since you are stilltechnically his dependent. He may be worried that the baby's fathermay bail on his responsibility. With all the negative, there aresome positives to consider.

Nothing. Unless the father says something it could just mean you're having nightmares. If he stopped helping you out an everything when you got pregnant then that's probably w…here the dream came from but unless he says he wants to it doesnt mean anything.
Not unless you live in Utah but you can ask the court to terminate his rights if he never has contact with the child for instance.
