A person can relinquish parental rights volutarily by filing a petition in the proper court if the information contained allows such actions in accordance with state TPR requirements. Or the court for reasons prescribed in state statutes can permanently terminate parental rights. Both procedures have to be done according to the proper legal procedures simply signing a paper proclaiming such an action is not considered legally acceptable under the laws of the state.

No, if the mother voluntarily gives cutody to someone else, she can no longer be paid child support because she no longer has custody of the child. What happens now is the father can obtain custody because he does have rights or the person who has custody and have legal guardianship can file for assistance in which child support can be included or filed.

Giving up rights does not alter the fact that the child is his. If he gives them up so the child can be adopted, then he may be relieved of the payments.

No. When a father signs over his parental rights, he gives up the right to visitation.

If the father gives up his rights they will have no rights either. They can see the child if the mother say so. Even before that only a few states have rights for grandparents so they can seek visitation through the court. It is always up to the parents to decide.

This is a common problem when children are taken away from the mother, or she voluntarily gives them up to the state, but the state doesn't immediately lace them with the father. You may need to file a custody challenge the same as if you were fighting her for custody. Check the link below on how to do it.

Not until the parental rights of the biological father have been terminated.There are a couple ways to do that:The bio father gives his consent and voluntarily surrenders his parental rights.You go to court and can get them to involuntarily terminate his parental rights; this one is much more difficult: if the bio father has abandoned the child, isn't paying child support, is in jail or is a danger to the child (or something similar), you may have a case, but if he's visiting and paying support you will have to go with the first option.

NO, YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS TO THE CHILD AFTER SIGNING AWAY PARENTAL RIGHTS

Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

Your father would have to give up all parental rights and your uncle would have to petition the court to adopt you. Unless you father gives up his rights, there really isn't a way to force him.

Typically, a parent gives up her rights preparatory to an adoption.

It means that the father no longer obtains any right to the child. The father gives up his right of custody. The father no longer has rights to see the child and the legal guardian can deny any or all visitation.

The concept of waiver in a criminal case means that the defendant voluntarily gives up certain rights. The defendant has a number of rights: to remain silent, to a jury trial, to cross examine witnesses and more. In the context of a guilty plea, a defendant gives up or waives these rights. For more information see the related links below.

no the mother should have the legal obligation to take care of the child

User Avatar

Only if the courts grant his request to terminate his rights. If they don't then he can still be legally responsible to pay.

Depends not only on the state, but also each individual county.

User Avatar

This depends on whether the child's father also allows it.

User Avatar

As you have now given up your rights to the child you do not have to pay back child support.
