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.

Absolutely nothing. You have no control whatsoever over naming the child. You have no parental rights unless you establish your paternity in court. Once established legally as the child's father you can request a visitation schedule and the mother can obtain a child support order. The child's name is the mother's choice.Absolutely nothing.

Not unless you have executed a Power of Attorney naming her as your attorney in fact.
