Best Answer

The voluntary relinquishment of parental rights can be done Pro Se, although it is advisable to obtain advice from qualified legal counsel. Contacting the clerk or administrator of the state family or circuit court in the city or county of residence can provide specific information. FYI, in the state of Illinois voluntary relinquishment of parental rights does not necessarily relieve the petitioning parent of financial obligations, unless the act is being taken to allow the child/children to be eligible for adoption.
