The first thing you need to do is get a paternity test preferably a DNA. Even if you are positive, the court will want solid proof. Family Court is concerned with what is in the best interest of the child. And doesn't view him/her as a possession that can be "given" to anyone.

The first thing you have to do is establish paternity. But you can't "make" the father sign over his parental rights. He has the right to be a part of the child's life (unless the court deems him unfit, and even then he would likely have the right to supervised visits with the child) just as he has the obligation to financially support the child. If the father does want to terminate his parental rights and you agree to that, then you also give up the right to pursue him for child support.

Can you be held responsible for a child without a DNA test being taken?

A DNA test can only prove that you are NOT the father. If you were married at the time or if were not married and the mother claims that you were the father, the courts will assume that you are responsible. It is your obligation at that point to prove otherwise. * Not if you contest the suit/act naming you as the father. DNA testing establishes parentage and rules out the possibility of parentage. It is the responsibiity of the mother who files for child support to prove that the person named as the father is the father. It is the responsibiiity of a father seeking custodial rights to prove he is the father or seeking to be relieved of parental obligation that he is not the father. Obviously either type of suit will determine parentage.

Your dad passed away and you received a vehicle of his how do you get the title to it you can not find the title?

Check with the DMV office to see what documents you need to do this. My guess is a death certificate for him and a will or some other item naming you as the beneficiary. They should have a copy of the title at the DMV. Check with the DMV office to see what documents you need to do this.

Can you register the birth of your child without naming the father?

Yes, you can. Most states prohibit naming a father without either a marriage license or a DNA test. Of course, if you are unmarried and sue the child's father for child support, the father's name will be added to the birth certificate. Also, in almost all child support cases, the child's last name is changed to the father's last name.

How does a father go about getting parental rights to visitation in Texas?

If the father was not married to the biological mother at the time the child was born paternity must be established before the court will hear any petition (lawsuit) concerning custodial rights and/or visitation. Most courts will accept a birth certificate naming the father or affidavit of such by the biological mother and father jointly. If such methods are not available or acceptable to the court of jurisdiction a paternity test is needed, preferably DNA testing as opposed to a blood test. The proof of paternity can be submitted as evidence at the time the lawsuit for custodial and/or visitation rights is filed.
