Maryland, Florida, Virginia, W.Virginia and New Jersey allow a female minor to marry without parental or guardian permission if she is pregnant or already has a child. Kentucky allows the action with the permission of the district court. All other states (except Nebraska) require the consent of pare…nt(s) or guardian for persons under the age of 18. FYI, all states (with the exception of Nebraska) as of 2/27/06 have established the legal age of majority for minors at 18. ( Full Answer )

The father has not established his parental rights. An unmarried mother has legal custody of her child. Since the parents are not married the father needs to establish his paternity in court in order to gain his parental rights legally. Once established he should consult with an attorney who special…izes in custody issues who can review his situation and explain his rights and options under the laws in the jurisdiction. According to the details the child has not been in a stable environment since birth. An attorney can help the father plead his case before the court. ( Full Answer )

First, he must have a good reason to convince the court that the child would be better off in his custody. He would need to convince the court that the mother is unfit and the mother's custody is not in the best interest of the child. The health, safety, and welfare of children is always the court's… primary concern in determining the best interest of children when making any orders regarding the physical or legal custody or visitation of children Generally, if the parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody and control until the father can establish his paternity. Remember, a child's mother can always be identified by medical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was not legally married at the time of the birth he must seek other means of establishing his paternity and that is done through paternity test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court and once established the father can petition for custody. The court will schedule a hearing and the father must present his evidence and argument. The court will review the testimony and evidence to determine if a change in custody is warranted and render a decision. At the same time the court will address child support and if the father is not awarded custody he can request a visitation schedule. ( Full Answer )

In most cases, you have to be notified in every state, and given the opportunity to file a challenge. ( Full Answer )

Do a father have to adopt his child after the father n mother of the child gets married n the child has the mothers last name?
You can't adopt a child who's biologically yours. If you have not already done so, I suggest that you ask the court for an order finding that you are the father. You will probably have to sign an acknowledgment of paternity or undergo genetic testing to accomplish this.

This is a question tha cannot be answered with generalities on this site. It is totally up to the interpretation of the laws of your state, the individual circumstances which may apply, and the family law procedures of the court system.
What are the chances of a father getting his child back if someone else other than the mother has the child and is seeking to adopt the child.?
This is dependent on different factors, including whether the father has officially registered as the putative father to the child in order to stop such and action. In a Missouri case of a few years ago, a man who was paying child support, but had not registered as the putative father within the …state time limit, was unable to stop the adoption. In Kansas, the man must have been providing financial support during the pregnancy, whether or not he was sure that he was the father. In Wisconsin, if a man is having sex outside wedlock, he must register the fact with the state, and with whom, in order to challenge an adoption. An unmarried man does not have a presumption of parental rights to a child born outside wedlock, in any state, until granted those rights by the courts. Even then, preparations must be made for such a challenge. See links below for more info. ( Full Answer )

Yes, but only if the birth father's parental rights have been terminated by the courts.
You are asking a legal question that has many possible answers. In this state, marriage has nothing to do with it. Child support and visitation is treated about the same way for single people as divorced people. Other factors, however, matter. See a lawyer.
No, the child is his too and he might want to take care of it or someone of his family. If the father is unknown it's different.
No. The child has 2 parents not just one so both need to give their consent.
Can the mother change the childs name and have her new husband adopt the child without the real fathers consent?
That depends on where you live and whether you parental rights have been terminated.

When that happens, ad…option cannot occur unless both parents consent. If your parentage has never been legally established, or your parental rights were terminated, either voluntarily or involuntarily, yes, she can do it. ( Full Answer )

You would need to provide the state where you live for a specifi…c answer. ( Full Answer )
Is it considered kidnapping a child if mother and father are married and mother leaves with child without telling father?

my husband has a another child in other girl my husband accusing me child abused with no exact evidence.what should i do?
Your question is a complicated one and cannot be given a simple yes or no. It can be done, however, and the adoption revoked under very specific circumstances but requires expert legal assistance. If your parentage was legally established, either by your name appearing on the birth certificate or pa…ternity established after the fact, and your parental rights had not been involuntarily terminated by the court, placing a child up for adoption without the consent of both parents is illegal.

Can a mother bring his to child to other country without the consent of the father in which the father name is not mention in the child birth certificate?
Depends. Even if he is not on the birth certificate he can still have a court ordered visitation and pay child support. In that case she needs both his and the courts permission.
The biological father have to give up his parental rights or this will not be possible. If he is an illegal immigrant he can still have paternal rights in the US. Once his rights are terminated you can apply for adoption.
In the US, no and yes. I believe Utah is the only state where the mother only have the obligation to notify the father of her decision but he can then seek custody and stop the adoption. So getting his consent or give him the custody if she does not wish to parent the child, would be the better choi…ce and prevent suffering for hopeful adoptive parents and waste of money and time in court. Answer If the father's paternity has been established legally , no. The court will require his consent to the termination of his parental rights so that the child can be adopted legally. This is one of the most complicated areas of law. Each state has its own laws regarding unmarried birth father rights concerning an adoption. Reputable adoption agencies take precautions to notify the birth father of an adoption and obtain his consent. Any adoption that takes place without the father's consent is risky. There is always the chance the father will hear about the adoption and he can challenge it if he didn't consent. Birth parents parental rights must be terminated in court before an adoption can be approved. Courts will ask for the identity of the father so that he can be given notice of the proceeding. The mother will be required to attest to her answers in the petition. A mother who is not truthful in answering that question may cause problems later if the father shows up after somehow hearing of the adoption. The courts generally require a diligent search for the father if the mother reports that his whereabouts are unknown. In that case a notice is published in the local newspaper. Notice by publication could leave the proceeding vulnerable to challenge. You must seek expert advice in your particular jurisdiction. ( Full Answer )
Does the child have to live with the father if the mother dies if he doesn't want to if the parents were already divorced?
Yes, the father in this case is the legal guardian. If the child is a older teen another relative can petition for custody and the court would hear the teen out and could follow his wish.
Only if you live in Utah, there notification is enough. You can goto court and see if you can get his parental rights terminated.
