Can a father simply sign over his parental rights in Ontario Canada or must the child be adopted by another man in the biological mother's life?
Answer . You can sign over the rights to your child to the mother herself. \n. \nBefore you do this realize what you are doing. Your child needs to know who their fathe…r is. You may not feel this is important right now, but to that child YOU will always be their father. If your girlfriend/wife is seeing another man and they should live together or get married, you have every right to see your child by the order of a Custody Hearing (such as: once each weekend, summer vacation and certain holidays.) The only reason you should give up your rights to custody is:\n. \nAbuse of alcohol or drugs\nNot psychologically capable of this responsibility\nRefusing to pay child support\nSimply not wanting to be in your child's life. (be real sure of this one!)\n. \nI would like to add that just because you have partial custody of your child does not tie you down from moving where you choose to move and you only have to see your child once a week and not even on holidays if this is your wish. All that should be expected from you is to be part of your child's life to let them know you love them. If you make a promise to do something with them then keep your promise! This child is part of who you are!\n. \nMarcy (MORE)
