Best Answer

A person cannot force a parent to relinquish his or her rights to their minor children, only a court can permanently terminate parental rights. A biological parent can file a petition for the Voluntary Termination of Parental Rights in state court in the city or county where they live. The judge decides if the petition should be granted based upon what is best for the child or children that are involved. Another option to consider, go to the State Welfare office and ask to have his alimony and/or child support paid directly to them and have THEM issue the check. Men tend to be a little more punctual when they know the State is looking over their shoulder.

Unless the biological father is willing to voluntarily relinquish his rights to his child or children he cannot be forced to do so.

Be advised, the court will not terminate the rights of any parent who does not voluntarily submit to the action or who cannot be proven to be have committed a serious offense (physical abuse, endangerment, etc.) against his or her child/children.
