Do you have the right as a noncustodial parent to put your child up for adoption?

Not without the other parent agreeing to the relinquishment of his or her parental rights as well. Any parent can file for the voluntary termination of parental rights. It is the judge's decision whether it will be granted, and if so, to what extent. A TPR is not a legal instrument to be used as a way for a parent to be relieved of their responsibilities to their minor child or children.

Generally the noncustodial parent may move anywhere - within or outside the state where the children live. The court grants the noncustodial parent the right to visit the children but does not force the noncustodial parent to take advantage of that right. However, a court may require the noncustodial parent to provide the custodial parent with contact information and, where issues develop about the care or safety of the children, the court may require supervised visitation or at least that the noncustodial parent advise the custodial parent where the children will be.

There are many types of adoption including international and local. There is also Open and private adoptions. An Open adoption is when the biological parent(s) are allowed visitation with the child. A private adoption is like when a child is turned over into the chosen adopted family right after birth and the biological parent(s) have no contact with the child.

That depends on what agreement you have with the custodial parent. If it's a hot topic I would suggest the custodial parent deal with it.

Yes they can but it's up to the court to decide based on the crime etc. Prisoners have the right to petition for visitation.

The child has a right to see the parent if she wishes. The wishes of the child should be of paramount importance. Unless there are certain court orders in place (restraining order, protection from abuse order, divorce decree or Parental Rights and Responsibilities) or if the noncustodial parent has a criminal record for a sexual offense, the noncustodial parent does have rights. However the things they do should be with consideration for the child and custodial parent in mind. Answer Unless they have been determined to be unfit the non-custodial parent has the right to request a visitation order from the court with jurisdiction over the case. Once the visitation order has been established the non-custodial parent has the right to enforce that visitation order, exactly as stated in the order, unless it is modified by the court. The non-custodial parent has the right to be informed about important aspects of the child's life such as medical conditions and treatments, school attendance and school functions, sports programs, etc.
