What will happen if the mother doesn't want the father to have paternal rights?

In the UK, if you are married when your children are born, you both automatically have parental rights. If you are not married, then you have to apply for parental responsibility rights, if the mother does not want to share that with you. This can be done by court order. After 2003, if not married but father is written on the birth certificate, that is enough to have parental responsibility and all that that entails. Not sure how it is for you guys in the USA!

How do you sign over parental rights from mother to father?

You don't sign over parental rights, you either have them or you terminate them. The father, if not married to the mother, can get his parental rights by going to court and prove paternity by a DNA test. He can then petition for custody, visitation rights and pay child support. If the mother in this case wants to terminate her parental rights she has to ask the court for that but they usually only allow it if the child is up for adoption. She would still have to pay child support if they terminate. In this case the father should just get full custody, legal and physical.
