Normally you would not be allowed to relinquish your rights just to avoid paying support, but, you are allowed to do so if the mother doesn't want the support money.

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.


Relinquish his rights, yes; however, doing so will not terminate his child support obligation.




One parent can not take the other parents rights away. The parent has to relinquish their own rights.

You can relinquish parental rights, but it does not absolve you of paying child support. When you relinquish your rights as a father, you are still a parent under the eyes of the law. You may also want to consider who's best being served by you removing yourself from your child's life just so as not to have to help raise him or her.


If you relinquish your rights you are not entitled to visitation.



Relinquishing one's parental rights does not terminate one's child support obligation.


if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?



A biological father cannot be forced to relinquish his rights to his child simply because the mother wishes it to be so, the act must be voluntary. In some cases the court has the power to terminate parental rights of either the father or mother or both if circumstances warrant.


The court always considers the welfare of the child(ren) before anything else. The father might be allowed to relinquish parental rights, but he would not be relieved financial obligations, such as child support, medical coverage and so forth.


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.


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).


In most cases, a parent's decision to relinquish parental rights is voluntary. The other parent's feelings generally make no difference.


Yes. And it's not the mother who gets his rights terminated, it is the court.


If you truly mean rights (such as visitation), you can just walk away. However, In Indiana, a father cannot "relinquish" parental obligations such as support unilaterally. This is true unless something else happens such as the mother remarries and her new husband legally adots the child or the child becomes legally emancipated. Otherwise, you sre stuck, so to speak, with the obligations of a father until the child is an adult. Interesting to note that the woman can relinquish her obligations to a child before (abortion) or after birth (adoption) but that in no state does the father have any post-conception decisions.


In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

Paternity would have to be established first. The father could then get custody and child support from the mother; she does not need to relinquish her parental rights for this. But, if this involves aborting her rights by dropping the child at an ER or with family services, his chances of getting the child is about 15%, while still being required to pay child support and having little to no visitation rights. Often the child is place in foster care over 100 miles away. see link


If you relinquish your parental rights, you are still not going to get child support payments. The child support is for the child.


My question is what forms can i get online for a father to sign over his parental rights.
