Of course she can ask but she can not force him to. Only a judge can if he finds reasons for it.
You can sign your rights away but you will still have to pay child support if you are the father or mother of the child. There is no way to avoid paying child support.
Yes, if the mother does not want the child and the father is willing to take the child. Then the mother may sign her rights over to the father if the father is able to take of the child. Signing over one's rights will not terminate child support obligation(s).
if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Yes but the mother/guardian shares most of the costs
Yes, equal to the mother.
In the United States, fathers have no rights regarding unborn children. In Kentucky, a father won't have rights to a child unless he's on the birth certificate or until he establishes paternity in court.
If a father finds out he is the biological father of a child, he has as many rights to the child as the mother does. He can take the mother to court for custody or to set up a parenting plan.
As long as the father is a good father, he will have the same rights as the mother. You may be even able to get 50% custody of the child.
no the mother should have the legal obligation to take care of the child
I don't know about Tennessee, but I live in Kentucky and I have permanent custody of my grandson. His mother and father gave up their rights to him and they both have to still pay child support.
First, without a court order, the mother cannot prohibit the father from seeing the child. If he has not voluntarily given up his rights to the child, and a judge has not created a custody schedule, the father has as much right to see the child as the mother.Second, if the father does voluntarily give up his parenting rights, or a judge does involuntarily remove his parenting rights (or awards full custody to the mother), the father would still owe child support until his child reaches the age of majority and has graduated high school.
Child support would generally go to the person raising the child. Mother might even be ordered to pay to father.
if the father has not signed he has no rights to the child unless he take you to court and gets a DNA test done. until that happens the father has no rights what so ever but if he has signed the father would have the same rights as the mother
If not married he has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. If married to the mother they have equal rights to the child.
I would think that if the mother and father are not together and the mother is willing to give up custody of the child to the father than the father would have rights to the child. If the adoption papers haven't been canceled yet they will have to be signed when the baby is born saying that the mother and father give up parental rights to the child
No, the mother and father of the child both have to agree whether to hand over a child
No. If the mother is unmarried then she has legal custody of her child automatically. If the father wants parental rights he must establish his paternity in court.No. If the mother is unmarried then she has legal custody of her child automatically.

No he is then the father of the child but in order to get rights he has to go to court and prove paternity first in order to get visitation, custody and pay child support. If married to the mother when the child is born, he is automatically considered the father and have rights.
Each has equal rights and responsibilities.
Yes, but father can challenge.
Assuming you mean a biological father of a child born to an unwed mother. The rights a guy who fathers a child out of wedlock vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. For example, in some places the father has to be notified before the child can be put up for adoption; in other places the guy has no rights if he is not married to the mother. Even if he would normally have rights, a court may still deny or revoke rights to see the child because of an offense. If he is the biological father of the child and you as the mother are keeping the child from him he can actually fight you in court and potentially win custody of the child. Sadly it is rather common for a mother to move and take the child with her and the father has no recourse to force her to grant access to the child. You can go to court to get them to tell the mother to grant you access to the child, but the courts seldom enforce those rulings for unmarried fathers.
It depends on what you mean by signing over her rights. A mother could consent to the father being given sole legal custody. She may be required to pay child support. You should consult with an attorney if you want more information. In the state of Alabama, yes a mother can sign over her parental rights to the father of the child.
