Typically parents have equal rights to their children, but if the child lives in a different country, it's best to hire a lawyer that knows the laws in that country when it comes to things like custody, visitation, and child support

That depends on where the child was born. If in the USA, the father, if legally deemed, has as many rights as the state's laws provide in the child's legal state of residence. Any child born on USA soil is, by virtue of their birth, conferred the status of a citizen of the USA and as such, is subject to all federal laws and state laws where they reside. If the child was born in Brazil and USA citizenship has need been otherwise awarded, Brazilian law would apply as to the rights of the father.

Yes, if the mother does not want the child and the father is willing to take the child. Then the mother may sign her rights over to the father if the father is able to take of the child. Signing over one's rights will not terminate child support obligation(s).

Yes, a father can give up his rights to a child in Missouri. A judge would have to be present when the rights are signed away.

No. The biological father can give up his rights and if your husband then want to be more than a step parent, who have no rights to the child, can adopt your child. Or not, that is your choice as the parent.

No. There is no requirement for the child to have to "know" the father for him to give up his parental rights.

the child and your self need to go to immagrastion and get citizenship in brazil for the child.

Signing rights away will not stop any child support from being taken from the father. If the child is the fathers then he is financially responsible for the child weather he has rights or not.

If a father finds out he is the biological father of a child, he has as many rights to the child as the mother does. He can take the mother to court for custody or to set up a parenting plan.

Too much drinking and lack of supporting of his family will lead to a father to loose his rights to his child.

No he is then the father of the child but in order to get rights he has to go to court and prove paternity first in order to get visitation, custody and pay child support. If married to the mother when the child is born, he is automatically considered the father and have rights.

Adoption means the legal father of the child is not the biological father. By giving up the child for adoption the father gave up all rights pertaining to the child. In court the adoptive parent will be the victor.

If the "step-father" has adopted the child, then the step father has all the rights that are normally afforded to a biological parent. If the "step-father" never adopted the child, he has no more rights legally then someone walking in off the street.

He has rights to the child since he is the father, but i don't think he has any more general rights if he is still illegal.

An unmarried father cannot "choose" to not pay child support. The laws in every state require that a father pay for the support of his child. The mother must bring an action to the appropriate court so that a child support order can be established. Visitation rights are separate and a father can have visitation rights established by the court. Visitation rights are not dependent on paying child support.

No. The father would have no rights whatsoever relative to the child.

You cannot adopt a child if the father still has legal rights over that child. The father would have to sign the child over to you. that is the only way you could adopt the child. marriage has nothing to do with it.

In Nebraska, a father can sign his parental rights away through the court. By signing his rights away, this does not negate him from paying child support.

If not married he has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. If married to the mother they have equal rights to the child.

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.
