If the question is "how does a mother sign away her rights to a child before the child is born so that the father can be the primary parent?". The answer is, she can't. Mothers and fathers alike will have rights and responsibilities to their children unless the state determines them to be unfit and terminates their rights OR unless a step-parent decides they wish to adopt and papers are filed for the termination of the mother's or father's rights so that the step-mother or step-father can adopt instead. If the question regards a mother who does not want to be a primary parent to the child and a father who wants to be a primary parent (the parents are in agreement). There should be no problem transferring custody to the father with or without the court's involvement. Either parent may raise the child without interference from the court as long as the other parent agrees. However, mothers, like fathers, may be assessed for child support in this situation. In the eyes of the law, the child's best interest is what matters and if a mother does not want a relationship with her child, the court is still going to hold her responsible, financially, for that child. Also, if the child wants to seek a relationship with the mother, the court would want the child to be able to know the mother and find the mother. Only in the case of adoption either by a step-parent or by another couple will the court sever the rights of a mother or father. No action concerning custody, visitation, child support or any issues concerning the child can be or will be addressed by the court until the child is born and parentage is established.

If you do not know if you are the father of an unborn child can you sign over guardianship to the maternal grandmother of the unborn child?

The answer depends totally on whether or not you were married to the child's mother. Any child born to a married couple is considered to be the legal child of the husband until proven otherwise. HOWEVER, if you were NOT married to the child's mother, then you have no legal rights, even if you are the father. An unwed mother who has a child is considered the sole legal parent of that child in most states. Even if you were proven to be the father - you have no legal rights without going to court , if you were not married.

What do you do if a mother wants to sign over her rights to you for her unborn child?

No one can sign over rights on an unborn child. If you want custody, after the child is born, if the state where the mother legally resides allows for voluntary termination of parental rights, she may petition the court for a change of custody or again, as mandated by law, you may petition for custody. There will be a hearing, and investigation and after everything is concluded, you will be given custody of the child if the court feels it would be in the child's best interests.
