My x-husband did a voluntary termination of rights - I contacted my attorney and started from there. Papers were filled with the courts, once the judge signed off on that and I received everything back I filled out the necessary paper work for Birth certificate -name change- then did the social security card. We live in Louisiana. Hope this helps.

Usually you have to pay child support when you terminate your parental rights regardless whether you are willing to do it or not. If you are allowed to terminate them is up to the judge.

In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.

If her father does not have anything to do with her, he might be willing to terminate his parental rights. If he does that legally then your husband can adopt her. That will be a relatively simple process that your lawyer can handle.

You may attempt to contact the biological father to request he give up his parental rights. If he is willing to do this, any family law attorney can process the paperwork. If you are unable to contact the father, you can petition the courts to terminate his rights as an absentee. Again, a competent family law attorney can process this for you.

No. Since he brought the child into the world he must support it. Note that you cannot simply give up parental rights in order to avoid child support. Generally there must be another adult who is willing to take over your legal responsibilities and financial obligations as the child's parent.In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit.

The father can petition the court to terminate parental rights and if he can provide compelling reason why such a petition should be granted, yes it could happen. However termination of parental rights does not terminate child support obligations, only your right to visit your child or have any decision making input in their lives. Child support generally can only be terminated if the child is placed for a legal adoption with an adult willing and able to assume financial responsibility for them.

If the cousin is currently married to you, and is willing to accept parental responsibilities and adopt the child, then the father can give up his parental rights.

Not without parental permission. Until you turn 18, you remain their responsibility.

You cannot voluntarily relinquish parental rights under Pennsylvania law unless the child is being adopted. The courts may involuntarily terminate parental rights under specific (and dire) circumstances. Many people are operating under the false assumption that signing over their rights absolves them of child support responsibilities when often, it does not....not unless the child is legally adopted by another adult willing and able to assume financial responsibility for the child.

A parent cannot simply abandon their child, however in most cases they can voluntarily relinquish parental rights provided that adequate alternative care (such as a relative willing to take the child or someone willing to adopt them) is available.

Jefferson was willing to go against his ideas of "strict construction" to purchase the Louisiana Territory because he felt that the purchase would benefit the country with trade and agriculture.

It depends on which state you are in and under what circumstances you are signing your parental over for. In some states, you cannot sign over your parental rights unless the other parent is remarried and the step-parent is willing to adopt the child.

The reason that Napolean was willing to sell Louisiana Territory so cheaply is because France was in debt from his military persuits and needed the money desperately. Also at the same time, Britain was declaring war on him.
