You file a petition in Family Court to "Relinquish Parental Rights". In most cases the parent wishing to give up their rights to a child must undergo a counseling session. In almost every state, unless the child is being placed for adoption, relinquishment does not relieve the parent from their financial obligations.

ok i mean his name is on certificate, they were never married, broke up not long after and the father has not been around, in jail 90 percent of time so wants to sign rights ovr since he wasnt there and doesnt see him
