Asked in Divorce and Marriage Law
A mother wrote up a paper saying she was giving up her parental rights and had it notarized is this leglly binding?
It would only be legally binding if the father (or other guardian) concented to taking full responsibility for the child (and there was something in writing to that effect) OR if the child was a legal adult or legally emancipated. Such a thing would most likey have to go through a court system rather than just signing a peice of paper.

In washington.If you give up your rights to your child do you have to pay child support?
There are two different factors here. Parental rights are things like visitation and the right to have a say in how the child is raised. You can give those up. Parental responsibilities are things like ensuring that the child is fed, sheltered, and receives adequate medical care. You cannot give those up. So, yes, if you give up your rights to the child, you may still have to pay child support.

Asked in Custody, Power of Attorney
Does giving someone power of attorney of a child give them custody?
A power of attorney over a child is a document signed and notarized by a parent giving a non-parent authority to make decisions for a minor child. It is not a court order. It is typically used by a parent who is unavailable for a period of time and wants to grant authority to another person over their child. It can be used to authorize the person to obtain medical treatment for a child or sign up a child for an activity or for other significant decisions.
Asked in Custody, Law & Legal Issues, Child Support
What is the legal procedure to give up one's paternal rights to his own child?
A petition is made to the family court and a hearing is held. Parent(s) can relinquish their rights so the child can be adopted or made a ward of the state. But unless the child is adopted the parent(s) will not be relieved of their financial obligation. Even if the child is in foster care, the state has enforcable laws to make the parent(s) pay child support. What if both the parents agree to the father giving up his rights. They were never married and his has not ever given anything monetary or even seen the child personally for 5 years. The mother has been raising the child herself. A form was written up by both parents and notarized for the father to give up his rights. What would be the next step to make this complete and is this possible since the mother does not seek any child support from him for the raising of the child.
