If you sign over your parental rights in a court of law...you must go back and petition the court to regain your parental rights.

That depends on why you singed them away and what the judge thinks about it. To get visitation you have to get your parental rights back.

Terminating parental rights doesn't terminate one's child support obligation.

Generally no, as you're no longer the parent.

You need a good lawyer and have to go back to court. Coercion is hard to prove. You have to try for the parental rights first but courts are not that keen on giving it back. They are scared you might do it again and they think about the child. Talk to a lawyer about your chances.

Parents usually have to pay for their child even if it is the state that has custody. The child is taken away and parental rights terminated in order to protect the child. If you want your parental rights back and custody you will have to turn to the court.

No. You have no parental rights after you have relinquished them legally, i.e., you have no right to see the child. Whether you can get your rights back depends on the circumstances. You should consult an attorney who specializes in custody issues. If the child was adopted it is not likely you can re-establish any rights.No. You have no parental rights after you have relinquished them legally, i.e., you have no right to see the child.

There is no route to regaining parental rights once they have been legally and voluntarily terminated.

by "signing over rights" I persume you mean, terminating her parental rights and no, she is not obligated to pay child support, however, any accumulated back child support, or "arrears" is required to be paid, unless agreed otherwise. For this you would have had a prior order to pay support prior to the terminating of the mother's rights. When your rights to a child is terminated it is as if the child was never yours and your rights to the child, and obligation for the child are forever terminated.

Yes and no, depending on the circumstances. Not if the child was adopted.

First, only the courts AND the mother can allow you to give up parental rights, provided the mother is not now, or in the future, collecting AFDC. It would stop current payments, but not previously owed payments, especially if she had had collected AFDC. They have override power.

Termination of parental rights does not terminate child support until/unless the child is adopted. At that time, the biological parent still owes whatever he had been ordered to pay and has not paid.

All child support arrearages that are validated by a court order must be paid in full even if the obligated parent is granted a termination of parental rights.

The parent have to give up his parental rights voluntarily or the court can do it but child support can be taken out of his wages if he refuses to pay. There are many ways the court can see to that he pays. They don't end someones parental rights for not paying child support because even if the parental rights are gone they still have to pay child support. If you mean his custody or visitation rights, they are a separate issue and does not involve child support. One have to see to what is best for the child and try to let the child have both parents in their life. So go back to the court that issued the child support order and tell them that he is breaking the order by not paying.

In most states you will lose you parental rights and if you want it back generally you will need a lawyer.

you can't... sorry my father had his parental rights terminated you can not get them back

The court and the mother have to agree to that you do this and you continue to pay child support incl the back support if there is any until the child is adopted. You will no longer have any rights to the child.

First, you can't voluntarily sign away parental rights without the permission of the court AND the mother, provided that the other parent is not now or will in the future be on Welfare. They have the power to override any such decision. If you are granted it, you will still owe the back child support, but there will not longer a current payments, so the amount you pay will not change until the arrears and compounded interest penalties are paid. Why not be the a father to the child? see related link

You can only apply for that if they give up their parental rights and she is up for adoption.

It depends on why they were given up or taken away in the first place. If the child was legally adopted then the answer is no.

Terminating parental rights does not mean you are no longer obligated to support the child so you still have to pay child support. Unless the child is adopted. You will have no rights to the child at all if you have your rights terminated and the court will not give them back so be sure what you are doing.

If you have lost your parental rights, you must contact the state. They will inform you of what needs to be done in order for you to gain them back.

No. A voluntary relinquishment of parental rights is permanent and cannot be rescinded.

He has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support and also petition to sign the birth certificate. He could have done this 6 years ago when the child was born. The mother cannot deny him his parental rights. Now he will have to pay child support and he can even owe for 6 years back.

Depends on why you signed them away. If it was for temporary treatment you can but not if the child was adopted. When it comes to foster care. the court would have to be convinced the situation has changed and that you wont do it again.
