If the couple were not married then the father must establish paternity before any other action is taken, (custody, visitation, child support). Although it is possible for the child to hold dual citizenship the father would have to pursue parental rights issues through Mexican courts. The best option is to consult with an attorney who is knowledgeable in Domestic International Law. American Bar Association offers a free nationwide attorney referral service. http://www.abanet.org
Since the father is a minor, I would think that his parents have rights.
To legally relinquish his parental rights he would need to file a Termination of Parental Rights petition in the state court in the county in which the child resides.
As many rights as the mother wishes to allow until the father protects himself with court ordered visitation and decision making rights. In some states, the father may have certain intrinsic rights, but you would need to provide where you reside and the state (or country if outside the USA) where the child legally resides.
Yes I think he does have rights if he is the child's father. Legal status shouldn't have any bearing.
Yes. He can file a Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) petition in the appropriate state court in the city or county where he resides.
In the State where the child resides.
Parental rights or lack thereof completely depend on state law (or country if outside the USA) where the child legally resides.
maybe because Mexico chooses not no have rights
Mexico is a signatory of the human rights declaration, so at the very least, Mexico has the same rights any Western nation would have.
No, but he can't. see link
The mother until the father has gone to court to get his parental rights.
the Father of the Bill of rights is James Madison
No. The father has no parental rights until the child is born.No. The father has no parental rights until the child is born.No. The father has no parental rights until the child is born.No. The father has no parental rights until the child is born.
You require a specific land grant issued by the government of Mexico. There should be no problem, as most mining operations in Mexico are carried by Canadian, English as well as some American companies.
Not even if he did have parental rights. Children can have an opinion, but not a right to choose. see link below
Last time I checked no. Even if you become a citizen of Mexico, you don't have all of the rights of native mexicans.
Yes you could, but it's best to do it the legal way just in case the father has a change of heart. Good luck In the US any relinquishment of parental rights must be done according to the prescribed legal procedure of the state in which the child resides.
The rights of the natural father depends on if the father has given up his rights or not. If he has not given up his rights, he has the same rights as the mother, or as outlines in the custody order.
Yes she does, but those rights are outlined/limited by the law in the state or country (if outside of the US) where she resides.
none except standardized visitation.
A biological father who was married to the mother has specific parental rights unless a court has ruled otherwise . If there is a question/disagreement as to custody, visitation, support, etc. the parent wishing to establish the criteria should file suit in the family court in the state and county where the minor child currently resides. If the couple were not married the law presumes the mother to be the sole custodian of the minor child. If the mother refuses to allow the father his parental rights the father must first establish paternity and then file a lawsuit to attempt to obtain custodial and/or visitation rights if he that is his wish.
No, a father cannot simply sign his rights over. There has to be extreme circumstances for a father to be granted his rights terminated.
Immigration status has no bearing on issues such as parental rights and responsibilities in the United States. What does matter is prevailing law where the child legally resides. Since you have not provided the state (or country) in question, an accurate answer cannot be provide.
It would be both Mexican American with equal rights. The child would be considered to have dual citzenship, But the parents can also petition to have the child considered 100% Mexican or 100% American, I believe that it would be their choice.
I believe that you would have to go to your town or state house and get the paper work. I think it would be the same as adopting a child who isn't your girlfriends. It may also depend on the state the child resides in and if the father still has child rights to the kid. You may then have to custody battle the father (these is a rare case and the father, whom of which does not want anything to do with the child, should easyly give up his rights)
