There different levels to giving up your rights. You can't be forced unless you are an abusive and/or neglectful parent. Then a judge will remove your access to the child.

You can have another adopt the child. Then you lose all rights and don't have to pay child support either. The flip side is you don't get your rights back.

You can also negotiate with the mother of the child to give her full custody in exchange for not having to pay child support. Such terms can be challenged when circumstances change. However, a father who willingly stays out of a child's life is not necessarily looked kindly upon when he wants to have custody or even joint custody. However, even though the mother might agree to no child support, the state might come after you, if the mother can't support the child on her own.

If you can find the father unfit you can take him to court and see if the judge will take his rights but no you can't get child support once his rights are taking he has no responsibility lawfully to that child. Other way is to see if he will willingly sign his rights over .

Hmmmm? Did you get offended because I was right? Believe me if you don't take care of your kid its probably best for the child that you do give up your rights.oh and by the way when you give up your rights you still have to pay the back childsupport if any is owed and by the looks of it you probably still owe or you wouldn't want to give up rights.lol

I have an atty an my sons dad wanted to sign over his rights. My atty said if both mother & father have an atty & the father wana to sign over his rights he can do so, but just because he signs over his rights it still doesn't do away with child support. She could say now she doesn't want any form of child support but say 6 months down the road she could take it back to court an say to the judge she thought financially she could handle it but she can't do it all alone, then he would be ordered to pay child support even if he did sign over his rights!

Yes, this is right.. My cousin had a baby that was disabled. The father didn't want anything to do with her or her child. They got a DNA to prove he was the father, then he asked to sign his rights over. The judge allowed him to do so, but ordered him to pay child support and cover full medical insurance for her. Her daughter is 16 years old now and the father has never even acknowledged her. He actually told my cousin that he would file harassment charges on her if she even tried to contact him about the child. What a low life. She is much better off without him in her life, but what kind of "man" are you if you just "do away" with your own child? I say not a real man, for sure!

If you sign over your rights you DO NOT still pay child support. Signing over your rights is basically disowning the child. You no longer have any say so over anything and no rights to see the child at all whatsoever. Its like the child was never yours to begin with. The mother and father both have to agree to this as well. A father cant just,say im giving up my rights and stop paying. The mother must agree and if she does she is also agreeing to the fact that the father is no longer responsible for anything that has to do with that child including child support

No your wrong! The father still has to pay the back childsupport.the child did not ask to be born so whether the father wants to give up rights or not it doesn't mean he doesn't havr to pay childsupport or the back childsupport.I have plenty of friends and family that has had this situation and I know what I'm talking about so to "jamie" if your doing it to not pay childsupport sorry you still have to pay.

First, I want to say that I am against abortion but I question why a mother can go get an abortion which is killing a baby without the consent of the father and that is supposed to be ok, but a man who wants to sign over rights for whatever reason is a horrible person. The double standards that most people have disgusts me. When people( men and women) have unprotected sex they should be adults and take responsibility for what ever happens.

What about a kid you just found out that is biologically a yours?
I have a one year old son I just got a DNA test on and he IS mine.
However he has my ex's boyfriends last name and everything? He calls him daddy. I'm scared it would mess up this home. I like my sons step dad, they have a much better relationship than me and his mother ever had. I'm not afraid to pay child support but I just don't want to come into his life and just change something so drastic. He is a better father figure than I am, at the moment. And it's best interest for the child. How do I go about singing my rights over?
ill just tell ya!!!!!

Honestly, I think your just another dead beat dad whose not ready for the responsibilities of having a child. He's one year old... A one year old doesn't know what's going on. Nor will he remember you popping in the picture later on down the road. But one day he'll want to know why you let another man raise your child. Your relationship with the mother should have nothing to do with anything. If I just found out I have a son and be trying to make up for that year I missed out on.. Not trying to find ways to sign my rights over.
