If you are under eighteen and have a child can your legal guardian put your baby up for adoption without your consent?
No. even if you are under the AGE of 18 YOU are still the legal guardian to this child. You cannot be forced to give your child up, nor can anyone else make the decision for you, UNLESS you are mentally unstable or will have your child at risk. then the child CAN be taken. But I must say, if you ARE… under 18, you have to think of the best interest of this child. can you financially take care of this child.(VERY VERY VERY expensive) Will this babys father be there? could you give this child everything it needed? If there were any types of health problems with this child could you pay medical expenses and emotionally handle it? You have to look at the whole aspect of the situation. and if you are unsure about any answers to the previous questions then it would not hurt to look into adoption. There are sooo many(married, stable) families out there that would love to have a child but couldnt. And if you are not ready for a child, you could give the greatest gift to a family... a child... But good luck, and i hope i have helped! No. I am under 18 and am pregnant. I have decided to give my baby a better home through adoption. However, it is MY decision. You guardians cannot make you do it. YOU are the one who signs the adoption papers and has the right over your child. Also, in many states if you are under the age of 18, and you are pregnant and unmarried, you're considered the only legal parent of the child. The birthfather only has rights if he supports you and somehow contributes to the baby or you during your pregnancy. Your guardian may not be able to make the call, but if you are unable to provide or care for the child or fail to properly care for your child or if you are in currently in legal trouble (especially violence or drugs) the child may be taken by CPS after he/she is born.

Answer . There are two options. The child can be reliquished to the care of juvenile social services and become a ward of the court. Or a private attorney who specializes in adoption and is registered as such with the court of jurisdiction. Some states allow private adoption agencies which are li…censed and bonded by the state, to assist both the adoptive parents and the parent(s) who is giving up custody. ( Full Answer )

Can a biological mother give up a baby conceived while married for adoption without her husband's consent?
No! . \nI highly doubt that, the father has rights to that child, regardless of if they are married or not.
Answer . Answer. I think it depends if his name is on the birth certificate whether he has a say in adoption. If he has custody, or pays child support, he is your acknowledged parent and would definitely have to sign off on your adoption by someone else. If you are of age, you could pay to have …your name changed. ( Full Answer )
Can an Underage mother whod wants to put baby up for adoption prevent the underaged father from adopting?
I Know Of Something Similar To This Happening About A Year And A Half Ago.. The Father Wanted The Baby And The Mother Did Not, However, They Were Not Underage.. But Wether You Are Underage Or Not Doesn't Make The Difference, In Some States If You Have A Child Than You Are Automatically Considered …An Adult By Law, It's True For Michigan Anyways.. Well, The Father Wanted To Keep The Baby And The Mother Did Not, So What The Mother Ended Up Doing Was Dropping The Child Off At A Police Station And The Infant Was Taken Into Custody By The State, By The Way, Dropping A Child Off At A Police Station Or A Hospital Is Only Legal If The Infant Is Three Days Old Or Less.. Anyway, The State Got The Child, And The Father Sued And He Won The Case, Putting His Baby's Mother In Jail For Awhile, And He Got Full Custody.. So, There's My Legal Knowledge, Now I'll Give You My Advice:. For One, Why Give The Child Up If There's A Parent Willing To Take Care Of Him/Her? The World Needs More Fathers Like This One, We've Got Too Many Deadbeats. And If The Father Has No Reason To Not Be A Fit Father Than He Will Get Full Custody, No Matter What The Mother Wants, All She Has To Do Is Sign Her Rights Over, Unless She Does Something Horrific, Then Her Rights Will Just Be Taken From Her.. Anyway, It's Pretty Sick To Try To Force Adoption On A Parent Who Is Trying To Care, The Only Way The Mother Could Do This Is If The Father Was Visibly Unable To Care For The Child And The Mother Would Have To Prove That To The State, Then The Child Would Be Taken From The Father's Care. Ex. If The Father Beat The Child, Neglected The Child, Molested The Child, Or Was Unemployed, In Debt, Or Had Drug Problems, Gang Problems, Etc Etc Etc. Those Would Be Some Probable Causes For The Child To Be Legally Taken From The Dad. But If The Mother Just Simply Wants Nothing To Do With The Baby And Wants The Same For The Other Parent Then No, The Mother Will Not Win. ( Full Answer )
Yes, in most states and provinces you can. However, you may wish to postpone this decision until after your baby is born, as a mother's feelings and plans can change at that point once her baby is a "reality" for her. Postponing this decision until after the birth allows a mother to make a more info…rmed decision. You may wish to approach your parents and talking to them. This is a major life-changing decision you will be making, and losing a grandchild to adoption may be a major loss for them as well as for you. Regarding finding out more about adoption, it is best to speak to a counselor who is not affiliated with an adoption agency and who is thus not in a position of conflict-of-interest where their paycheck depends on a certain number of babies being placed per year. Your local social services department might be able to help, as well as providing programs for young mothers. ( Full Answer )
Because...there teens....they have to go to school or work..its either there parents take care of the baby or adoption =P
email this guy. this is what he posted on the internet: I know that are many people have discovered they have a sibling that was put up for adoption. I understand the range of emotions that this news brings forth. I have so many questions myself. I have been searching for over two years now for a si…ster that was put up for adoption in Odessa Texas. We think that she was born the end of 1949 or the beginning months of 1950 at the Gettins Clinic. She might not even know that she was adopted. I have learned a great deal about finding people. During my search I have helped several people find their loved ones. This has made all the time, money, and hard work worth while. If you need help let me know. I would like to help if I can. Sometimes it is impossible to find a family member as I have found, other times it's much easier than you think. LIN firstname.lastname@example.org ( Full Answer )
Unless you are the legal guardian of your father, yes. There is no requirement that he get your permission. And if someone else is guardian, it is their decision.
A woman can put a baby up for adoption without the father's consentin Utah. This has caused some controversy, and the Governorrecently signed off on a partial fix in an effort to close theloophole, forcing a residency requirement of 90 days.
If a birth mother is 18 and the birth father 20. Can she give up her baby for adoption without him interfering?
i shd think so! I don't know your situation, but maybe the 18year old mother should speak to the father, if she hasn't already. Again, i don't know what you've done about it, but maybe, if its your daughter, son or a member of family; you should leave them to make their own decisions for themselves …and only interfere when they ask you too. Even then, you should only do what they ask you too. However, if it has got serious, and they still wont say anything, as mean as it sounds, interegating them may help. :) ( Full Answer )
certainly NOT, if the fathers' name is the birth certificate, if the father's is absent but he knows the child is his a DNA test is in order and make sure that the father gets a good lawyer!!
I was. Thank god, my bio-father is an abuser but my bio-mom (now my sister) didn't tell him when she let my grandparents adopt me. I don't think it's legal unless his name isn't on the birth certificate.
You can't truly be adopted until your parents give up their rights or their rights as parents are terminated. The system is set up to allow parents multiple opportunities to demonstrate their ability to care for their children again. If you have someone who loves you and would like to adopt you, the…y may be able to hire a family lawyer to contact your biological parents about terminating their rights as parents. Some parents with substance abuse problems or mental problems are happy to do this. It is harder for abusive parents to give up their children for a myriad of reasons. I hope you find someone to love you as you deserve to be loved. If you can't be adopted legally by these people, know that they will always be in your life and can support you through the hard times/ ( Full Answer )
Full parental rights can only be terminated in two ways, both are done through court procedures.. Either or both parents can file a Voluntary Termination of Parental Rights petition in state court in the city or county where they reside.. The judge reviews the petition and sets a hearing date for …the action.. Whether or not full termination of rights is granted (meaning financial obligations as well as physical caregiving) is based upon what is in the best interest of the child. ( Full Answer )

In Kansas, if the father did not begin paying child six month prior to the birth of the child, he cannot challenge an adoption. Guess how many know this?
Your daughter is in jail and she just had a baby while in jail can social services put the baby up for adoption without the mothers permission?
They would likely first try to place the baby with a member of the mother's family, or a foster home.
If the biological father has rights do you need his permission when adopting the child when marrying the biological mother?
You cannot adopt a child if the father still has legal rights over that child. The father would have to sign the child over to you. that is the only way you could adopt the child. marriage has nothing to do with it.
If the father doesn't have joint custody, then yes. If he does have some sort of custody, probably not. If you went to court, look on the papers or call the court and see how much parental rights he has.
If a non married father wants to put the child up for adoption but the mother wants to keep it does the father have to pay child support?
Single fathers have no assumed legal rights to the child, so he can't do anything except pay child support.
If a biological father pays child support and gives up his and the mothers fiance adopts the baby will the biological father have to continue his arrears and future child support payments?
In general, adoption terminates the biological parent's support obligation. However, the arrears are still due, unless otherwise ruled on by the court, and provided none is owed a state agency.
that is not right thing to the mother MUST have a say it is her child she give birth to a baby NOT YOU
Could a birthmother legally give up a baby without the fathers consent by Adoption laws in AZ in 1987?
yes, if she is suffering from some problems and her husband is not supporting her.
No, you are the guardian of the child even as a minor. No one canmake you do anything unless you prove to be a unfit parent.Yourfather or even the father of the child can not make you give up thechild for adoption. Answer2: Your father cannot make you give up your baby. What he maybe is overwhelmed …and anxious that his child is having a child. Hemay be anxious as to whether you can finish school, whether he hasto help financially to take care of the baby since you are stilltechnically his dependent. He may be worried that the baby's fathermay bail on his responsibility. With all the negative, there aresome positives to consider. Visit your local Social ServicesDepartment for all information available to you. A number of youngmothers do their best to raise their children with love anddiscipline and some succeed. I admire your bravery for carryingyour child full term, give it all your best to raise your child theright way. Almighty God will bless you and your efforts. ( Full Answer )
Does an illegal immigrant father have rights to his American born baby if the American mother gives the baby up for adoption to her family?
You are addressing two unique problems. Illegal immigrant status and a mother who is putting a child up for adoption. The mother, by law in most states cannot give a child up for adoption without the father's permission. (If the mother is under age this is another hurdle you will need to face.) Y…ou will need an attorney to see you through the legal problems you will face if you want to stop the adoption. The sooner the better as many judges are behind the fathers rights to his child, but many more are very sensitive to the best interest of the child and will not be in a hurry to disrupt the relationship a child has formed with his primary care givers even in the case where she or he should not have been in their care. There are many legal aids groups available for a reduced fee or pro-bono if the cost is a consideration. ( Full Answer )
why wouldn't you? Maybe because the person that was having the baby did not have the baby's needs
You need to see a lawyer. Look for "Legal Aid" in your state as they offer free or low-cost legal advice. If someone is the "biological" father, he doesn't adopt the child, it is his child. He is legally obligated (in the USA) to provide support (money) for the child's needs. The only exception is …if the mother was married to another man at the time of the birth, then legally the husband is considered the baby's father (even if everyone knows and admits that the other man is the baby's biological father). If you're asking whether the biological father can be forced to take care of the child in his own house, the answer is "no" he can give up his parental rights to the child. If you're asking whether the biological father can take the child away from the mother and her boyfriend/husband, the answer is "maybe" if he can PROVE to a court that the baby's mother is unfit and he (the biological father) is a better parent. If the father WANTS to be involved in the baby's life even though the mother has a new boyfriend/husband, the father MUST be allowed to have visitation with his child. Not allowing him to see the child may cause the courts to consider the mother not fit to raise the child. Again, GET LEGAL ADVICE from a lawyer. ( Full Answer )
She can. the father does not own her. the mother is her own person she can leave if she wishes, but will be better if taken to court A person can move anywhere they like and they do not have to seek the permission of anyone else to do so. However if there are children involved and there is a disa…greement over the amount of time one or the other of the parents can spent with the child then there are arbitrators or if that fails family courts available.

If you are a minor under 15, you will not be able to do it without some legal help. You can utilize "safe surrender" laws and call Social Services. Adoption is pretty severe. Please get wise counsel (legal and otherwise) before attempting this with your chil.d
Well it would be the mothers choice. However, the father does in a way have a right to know. So I would in my opinion just tell the dad and maybe the father can help support the child so that you could actually keep your child.. Just consider all your options.
Does a 15 year old father have rights if the mother wants to give the baby up for adoption in the state of Iowa?
Yes, he has the same rights as her but he have to go to court and prove paternity by a DNMA test so he can get his rights and petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. So get a lawyer to stop the adoption and if the mother refuses, get the court give out acourt ordered DNA test.
If you do not have any custody papers that state specific visitation, then yes he can in most states. If there are no court orders, in most places he has the same rights you do. If you have papers saying that he can only have the child on certain days or times, and he is outside of that regulatio…n, he may be interfering with child custody. ( Full Answer )
No, generally legal expenses are taken care of by the private adoption agency via the adopting parents or the state agency in charge.
Can a mother get in trouble for putting her baby up for adoption if the father wants the baby in North Carolina?
If they are not married he is nobody to the baby and he will have to establish himself as the legal father before he can exercise any rights. He needs to both register himself as a putative father, and then he'll need to bring a paternity suit in court once the child is born. If he is a good man and… a good father make sure you are doing the right thing regarding your child. That is his biological father after all. If you don't want the child maybe it is better he get to stay with family, just not yours. Try to get along on this one or you will be facing each other in court. It would also not be fair to the people who wants to adopt him if they first get him and then he's taken away. If the father truly wants his child it will be horrible for him not to ever see him again. ( Full Answer )

They can pay for your expenses but that is as far as it goes. Federal law says you can not accept money for placing your child for adoption. Expenses for birth, medical, living etc is paid during the pregnancy through the agency by the family who will adopt. Also a sum the following month after birt…h for post natal care. Anything else counts as trafficking. ( Full Answer )
No. The child has 2 parents not just one so both need to give their consent.
What is required to put a baby up for adoption and does the mother need permission from the tribe to put baby for adoption if she's Native American?
After what I can find you do not need their permission, you can give up your child for adoption if you want BUT...in the US there is the Indian Child Welfare Act. This is a federal law that deals with adoptive placement of Native children. The Act states that the children can be placed with adoptive… families in the following order: 1) Native biological family 2) Native, same tribe, non-biological family 3) Native, different tribe, non-biological family 4) Non-native So the tribe don't have to agree with you giving your child up but they have to agree to the adoptive placement of any tribal members (or the children of tribal members) and has up to 2 years from the date of finalization of the adoption to become involved. So contact an adoptive agency so you can find a suitable family as soon as possible and in the meantime your child will be in foster care. ( Full Answer )
That depends on the law where you live. It can vary from state to state and country to country. No one can give you an accurate answer until you provide that information.
No, not if your mother has sole physical custody. If there is a joint custody arrangement, you'd still need the cooperation of both parents to make it happen.
That depends on prevailing law where you reside and legal custody arrangements (if any) that are in place, but generally, it would take the consent of both parents to place the child as a ward of the state unless the father can convince a court that it would be in the best interests of the child to …strip the mother of her parental rights.

Does the biological father of a child have any rights to a child if birth mother and presumed birth father put child up for adoption?
Yes. The child cannot be put up for adoption unless both biological parents give up their parental rights so unless you have done that the child can not be adopted unless the court strip you of your parental rights. Her boyfriend or "birth father" as you call him, has no rights to the child at all a…nd can not put the child up for adoption. If you have not established paternity in court and got your name on the birth certificate I suggest you hurry up because before that is done you have no rights. Get a lawyer. Clarification The presumed father is the person that the law presumes to be the legal father of a child until some legal action is taken to prove otherwise. The husband of a woman who gives birth to a child by another man is the 'presumed father' unless the other man is legally determined to be the child's biological father. A man who is named as the child's father on the birth certificate by his consent is the presumed father even if he is not the biological father. State laws vary regarding presumed father status. If there is a presumed father that may mean the biological father has not stepped up to the plate to confirm his paternity. He has no parental rights until he establishes his paternity legally. That would halt the adoption if done in a timely manner. This would be a complicated situation and you should obtain legal advice from an attorney who specializes in custody and adoption issues.

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.

Depending on the jurisdiction, the biological father has certain rights. You should hire an attorney.
