in order to do this there needs to be a provable valid reason why you would want to do this, such as another party wanting to adopt, financial hardship, you're not the biological parent, or abuse to name a few. it is always best to have an appointed guardian beforehand so the child has a stable environment.


Get legal help so that it is done right--this is not a casual thing to undertake.

That depends on who he wants to sign over his rights to and the particular circumstances.

A court would need to approve any "signing over" of parental rights.

First and foremost, you have to get your ex-husband to consent to relinquishing his rights. If you're unable to win him over on that front, you can pretty much forget about it.
