Q: Im looking to sign over my rights to the mother of the child. Is it even possible?
The child is 2 and I just found out hes mine I believe its the best interest of the child to sign over rights to the mother
A: You are able to have your rights terminated. Such a huge decision needs to be fully evaluated by both mother and father. Consulting with a family law attorney is the best way to get a good understanding of your rights and obligations. Best of luck. 888-343-4529.
A: It is never in the child’s best interest to lose a parent, unless that parent is abusive. So, if you fall into that category then yes it is possible to terminate your parental rights. But as the other attorney said, this is a huge decision that will effect you, the child, the child’s descendants, and the mother for the rest of everyone’s life, so decide wisely, and do not terminate just because of child support obligations.
