If the cousin is currently married to you, and is willing to accept parental responsibilities and adopt the child, then the father can give up his parental rights.

A father can not sign his parental rights prior to a child being born, because the child has not been born so he technically has no rights.

No, he does not have parental rights until the child is born. If the parents are unmarried he must establish his paternity legally through the courts. If the parents are married the father has equal parental rights after the child is born.

Termination of parental rights, TPR, is a long and very difficult, complex process. You need to be in touch with the child welfare agency in your area, and with an attorney. And by the way, neither parent terminates the rights of the other. It is the authority of the state that terminates parental rights.

No. You would need to go to court to ask for a modification in visitation in order to deny him seeing his child.

If its your baby then shame on you for doing her with a minor! that should be on your concious! but also i believe you should adopt the baby if you ready to be a father.

You have the same parental rights as an adult when the baby is born. During the pregnancy and after you are the one deciding over your health.

The father is Michael Moon (Alfie's cousin).

You are still the father and have all your parental rights. Those rights and obligations don't change due to marital status. You also have the right to be slapped by either of the ladies involved.

The father still has rights but is not entitled to see the baby whenever he wants to as he left the mother to raise the baby by herself she can choose how, when and why she does or does not want the father to be in cotact.

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

Since your aunt is a sibling of either your mother or father, the cousin would be one of your parent's cousins. If the cousin had a baby, that would make you like a 2nd or 3rd cousin.

If your cousin is the mother, the father's cousins are not related to you.

No. If the biological father wants to assert parental rights he may file a petition with the court to order a paternity test taken. If presented with such an order the mother must comply or be held in contempt of court. A biological parent cannot be forced to relinquish parental rights it must be done voluntarily or said rights terminated by the court for reasons of abuse and/or neglect.

This will have to be decided by the judge. If you are a good person and the father is not in the picture, it is very likely that you will have rights to the baby.

User Avatar

Yes, the baby would be your cousin one more time removed from your relation to the cousin. E.G - if your second cousin has a baby, the baby will be your second cousin once removed and if you have children, they will be third cousins of the baby.

User Avatar

Until the baby is born he has no rights. His paternal rights starts after birth. If he then wants custody and you don't he has to go to court.

User Avatar

Only with parental consent. You don't get more rights when having a child as a minor. You just get rights to the child.

User Avatar

Difficult, but yes. In most cases, the state will take the child as single fathers have no assumed parental rights. see link

If a cousin has a baby, the baby is a cousin one further time removed to all other cousins of the parent. If the parent has a second cousin, the baby is a second cousin, once removed, to that person. If the parent has a first cousin, once removed, the baby is a first cousin, twice removed, to that person.
