== == If you are the father i suggest you seek legal advice immediately. The earlier you get this started the quicker things will happen as often the case the mother seems to have all rights and you will get what is left. Make sure legal documents are written up to show custody and/ or visitation rights. If the relationship between the mother and you are strained make sure you keep a diary of everything that happens and keep your nose clean so she doesn't have any evidence to file things like protection orders against you to stop you seeing your child.
Best of luck.
There are so many circumstances with this procedure and I use "procedure" lightly as I can understand where you are coming from and it's heart-breaking to say the least. First off, DON'T SIGN ANY PAPERS PREVIOUSLY TO THE BIRTH OF YOUR BABY no matter how many institutions or family members are pressing you to do so. You have every right to see your baby after birth, but, if you have signed any papers stressing otherwise then you will have to go to court. If you have signed papers to give up your baby to a set of parents If you have signed papers to give your baby up for adoption If you have signed papers to give your parents/boyfriend/ex husband custody If you have signed papers to make your baby a ward of the court (they decide where the baby will go. Whether married or not, giving birth comes down to the same thing ... most mothers are extremely emotional over this miracle of birth, thus it is unfair for any family member, lawyer or institution to press you into signing papers at this emotional time in your life. Wait until you have given birth, then in a week or so you will have to make hard decisions such as: Am I too young to look after this baby? Am I old enough to work and make a good \wage to raise my baby (they are expensive little angels.) Do I have proper health care for my baby? Will the baby be brought up in a loving home? If you decide you can't raise the baby on your own, then you can ask for help perhaps from your parents. Some parents will agree, others will not and unfortunately, some young people don't have parents to go to. Some couples that can't have children will often go through a lawyer for adoption. If you so chose to find the right parents to raise your baby then it's important that in that contract, if you so chose, you can have visitation rights, but be warned ... most young couples adopting will not agree that you let the baby know you are the mother when the child is underage. The parents who may adopt your baby will often offer to send pictures of your child to keep you up-to-date. No one can force you to do anything, but if Child Welfare finds out you can't raise your baby in a safe environment with good health care for that child they can take your child away from you. I know you have a lot to think of. When things come at you too fast, YOU SLOW DOWN and think. Take a few deep breaths and actions on problems are best left until one has calmed down, otherwise mistakes you can't rectify are made and there could be some very unwanted emotional upsets. Good luck God Bless Marcy
Yes, they can. Once the baby is born he can seek visitation rights to the child in court, but he only has rights to see the child, not the mother.
In all 50 states, you have to wait for the child to be born before you can forfeit your rights to a child.
Only with parental consent. You don't get more rights when having a child as a minor. You just get rights to the child.
His rights are to pay child support and petition for visitation.
no because that's not her child with him that's your child with him
A court would never award custody or visitation rights to a convicted child abuser.
A father can not sign his parental rights prior to a child being born, because the child has not been born so he technically has no rights.
only if the child is then adopted
Whatever his folks say his rights are. If he hasn't been emancipated, he has no rights to the child. That's why you don't pick an underage father for your child.
No. The father does not legally have any rights until the child is born.
In the US, they don't have any automatic rights, but they can certainly go to court and attempt to obtain rights. Rather they will be successful, depends on all the factors of the situation.
Not if he gets a court order for visitation. Both are parents and have rights to the child.
You still have to pay child support. Parental rights and child support are 2 separated issues. You have to pay for your child unless the child gets adopted.
No, he does not have parental rights until the child is born. If the parents are unmarried he must establish his paternity legally through the courts. If the parents are married the father has equal parental rights after the child is born.
They would have zero rights to the child however that does not mean they couldn't adopt the baby if they wanted to. Grandparents would have to go through the courts and prove they are able to take care of the child in question.
tell the person who you are having a baby with and then give up your rights.
Assuming you are an American citizen, your child definitely has the right to live in the states.
The illegal mother does not have rights to your biological child. So yes you do have full rights to your child then the illegal mother. Only the biological mother has rights to the baby unless its done in court. There's no such thing as an "illegal mother" - motherhood is not a crime. I suspect the author of the question meant to say that the child's mother is an undocumented alien. If so, in the US she has the same rights to her child as a citizen.
No. He can sign over his rights but he would still be liable to pay child support. The only time he doesn't have to pay child support is if a stepdad wanted to adopt the child, then the biological father doesn't have to pay child support if he signs his rights away.
No the father has no paternal rights until the baby is born.
if the mother wants the child to have the fathers last name she can or the baby can have her last name because my boyfriend wants our child 2 have is last name but i want the child 2 have mine because of the rights
Since you have become pregnant from having affair with another man and if your husband has forgiven you and is acceptable of the baby then the two of you can raise that child. However, if the biological father is interested in his own baby then he has some visitation rights. If you husband does not want to raise another man's baby then you will have to consider at least separation from your husband or divorce if you want to raise this child alone. The man you had the affair with should pay child support. You would be wise to seek legal advice.
Your husband has the right to raise the baby if he is the father. By law a man needs to support that child till he or she turn legal age. The only question now is, if your husband knows about the child will he leave you and move in with his mistress and his baby. He is in a big mess right now if that baby is his..
Rights to a baby in the United States vary by state. I know a situation where a court in the United States awarded a child to the Father and a court in Canada awarded the same child to the Mother. That was a mess! Only a lawyer can advise you what to do in your particular instance.AnswerIf you signed papers giving away parental rights or lost custody through the courts, you have no rights.
