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).

The rights of the natural father depends on if the father has given up his rights or not. If he has not given up his rights, he has the same rights as the mother, or as outlines in the custody order.

the courthouse has the paper work you will need.

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

It is very rare that a Mother wants to give full custody of a child to the Father. To this all a Mother would have to do is choose to sign and give up her rights to the child in court.

Yes the mother can because its like she have rights anyway. Because she get up clean,change,feed,bath ect all those things but she have to do what she have to do protect her child

Of course she can ask but she can not force him to. Only a judge can if he finds reasons for it.

Only with the permission of the mother AND the courts, provided the mother is not on Welfare or will be. Only mothers have the right, under the laws of the land, to abort, abandon, and give up their rights to their children, without societal repercussionand being called deadbeats.

There isn't really a way to force a father to relinquish his rights to his children. A mother can try to talk him into it, but whether or not it works is up to him.

As he is a non custodial father he has no need to give up his rights at all. see relate question below

Yes, but only if the father willingly gives up the right to child support in the divorce settlement.

No. You were not ordered to give of your custody rights, just primary residency was transferred to the father. You still have your parental rights, the same as a father, and responsibility to pay child support, whether the father wants it or not.

An adoptive father is your legal guardian and is your father. A step father is a man who marries your mother. He does not have to adopt you and cannot unless your biological father agrees to give up his rights as a parent.

If the mother is already the non-custodial parent, then the custodial father already has custody. If the question is meant to ask if the mother can give up her parental rights, then you would need to petition the court.

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.
