From a legal standpoint, a father has no rights over the unborn child. Roe vs. Wade took care of that. But if the mother decides on having the baby, the father becomes responsible. * Any parent can file a Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) petition in the appropriate state court in the city or county of residence. Such a petition cannot be filed nor can child support or custodial issues be addressed until the child is born and paternity has been established.
No. There can be no legal custody actions taken until the child is born.
tell the person who you are having a baby with and then give up your rights.
Yes, but only if the father willingly gives up the right to child support in the divorce settlement.
No, the child has to be born first.
No. There is no requirement for the child to have to "know" the father for him to give up his parental rights.
Yes, a father can give up his rights to a child in Missouri. A judge would have to be present when the rights are signed away.
Yes, a father can give up his parental rights but he still have to pay child support.
Yes, if the mother does not want the child and the father is willing to take the child. Then the mother may sign her rights over to the father if the father is able to take of the child. Signing over one's rights will not terminate child support obligation(s).

Rights of a father. If he wants to see the child, or give an alimony etc...
No he does not because he is not the child's parent anymore.
No. You were not ordered to give of your custody rights, just primary residency was transferred to the father. You still have your parental rights, the same as a father, and responsibility to pay child support, whether the father wants it or not.
what is going to happen when i give up my right as a father? will i still have to pay child support?
Yes. A father can give up their rights to a child at any age. However, legally they are still obligated to pay child support unless you drop the case completely. They are also legally obligated to pay back child support unless you drop that. Also, although they give up their rights legally to the child, in the eyes of the law, they are still the father. This means that the law can still go after them for child support if they want to.
It is very rare that a Mother wants to give full custody of a child to the Father. To this all a Mother would have to do is choose to sign and give up her rights to the child in court.
