When you believe fathers are irrelevant.
I would go to a family lawyer and ask what the laws are for your state about terminating parental rights. Then ask him/her how you should go about terminating your rights and how they can help you.
He can ask the court to do so, yes.
Yes, you can ask but not demand him to give up his parental rights.
You can ask him but not force him. If he is harmful to the child you can bring it to court and the court can take his parental rights away.
You can ask him but you can't force him to. 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.
Terminating your parental rights is a serious decision. If you wish to terminate your rights consult a family lawyer and ask about your states laws about parental termination.
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.
If the mother is already the non-custodial parent, then the custodial father already has custody. If the question is meant to ask if the mother can give up her parental rights, then you would need to petition the court.
Yes. The father contributed one half of the child's genetic makeup, and that's all that matters, really, to have parental rights, and responsibilities.Depends if he has been to court to actually get his parental rights yet and if not:He needs his lawyer to help him to prove paternity in court and he can then ask for visitation while in prison. Juse being on the birth certificate will not give him rights unless married to the mother. He needs to leave a aDNA test to prove paternity because they are not married.
No. You should visit the family court and ask to speak with an advocate or consult with a private attorney. This is a complicated legal matter.
Of course she can ask but she can not force him to. Only a judge can if he finds reasons for it.
No. You would need to go to court to ask for a modification in visitation in order to deny him seeing his child.
You would be notified if there is any court proceeding involving the adoption of your biological child unless your parental rights have already been terminated. In that case you need to ask the father since adoption records are generally sealed.You would be notified if there is any court proceeding involving the adoption of your biological child unless your parental rights have already been terminated.

Yes you can object. Generally a court will only terminate a parent's rights in order to allow a legal adoption to proceed or in cases of extreme abuse or neglect. A father cannot ask for his parental rights to be terminated simply to avoid paying child support.
Not unless you live in Utah but you can ask the court to terminate his rights if he never has contact with the child for instance.
Yes so leave this to the courts.If they were married when the child was born he is automatically the father and you have to prove paternity by DNA to prove you are the biological father. Then you can ask for your parental rights and get visitation, pay child support etc. Get a lawyer.If you already is on the paper as the dad and have parental rights you need to ask for visitation. She can not refuse a court order. That is breaking the law and she can herself lose custody if she does.
In child custody cases, the judge will rule on the basis of what he or she thinks is in the best interest of the child. If you have reason to believe that your ex is likely to have a bad effect on your child in some way, you can ask a court to take away his parental rights.
Contact the family court for your county and ask them for details.
Adoptions are possible when the mother will not give up custody when the mother will not give up parental rights to the foster parents but will give them up to a third party. However, you are asking the wrong person. You should be asking the social worker. Probably the state or government placed the children in that home. That is the person to ask.
Oh yea, just ask the judge who set the support payment level. He couldn't care less about your parental rights.
Parents can not sign over their rights permanently. They can go to court and ask to have them terminated but they usually only allow that in case of adoption. In this case, if no father is not known and no other relative steps up, the child will go to foster care IF the court would allow her to terminate her rights.
You need to ask the father to sign off their rights. If he refuses, you can petition the court if you have a valid reason.
Here are a couple of ifs: Not married you have no rights. - You would have to file court docs requesting a paternity test if she will not do it herself. Not married but you are on the birth certificate. - You are automatically viewed and recognized as the father. If you disagree, you can ask for a paternity test. If you do agree you already have rights and can file court docs requesting visitation and joint custody with the mom. Married - On the birth certificate or not....whether you are the father or not - you are automatically viewed in the eyes of the court as the father. Case in point: Michael Jackson, married to his two oldest kids mom, even though he is not the father he is viewed as the father as he was married to the mom during preg and when she had the babies. He automatically has parental rights.
No. If your dad does not have parental rights he is not even considered an option. Around the age of 14 the court can decide to ask you for who you wish to live with but then it is between your parents, not other people which is what your dad then counts as legally. And the court is not obliged to follow your wish. Legally it is not your choice until you are 18yo.
Not as long as both parents have parental rights. If one parent gives up his parental rights which is required when putting a child in foster care, the other parent is the first one in line to take the child since she still have her parental rights. This assuming both are fit to parent. If the parents are not married and the father has not proved paternity in court and got his parental rights he should do so asap and then he has rights to the child. The social workers usually ask relatives first if they are interested in taking the child. There is a shortage fo foster families and staying with family is considered best for the child.
