How do I sign away my parental rights?
While I am not licensed to practice law in your state and cannot give you legal advice, I can give some general observations on this issue based on the jurisdiction where I practice.
It depends on whether your parental rights have been established by a paternity action or within a marriage. Please note that you may not be able to sign away your parental rights, if it means the child is losing financial support. It is also possible that even if you sign away your parental rights, you may still be financially responsible for the child. Be sure you consult with a domestic litigation before signing any documents.
Family law is based on statutes that are state specific. I am licensed to practice in Nebraska and am not able to give specific and detailed legal advice regarding your situation. You need to contact an attorney licensed in your state who specializes in domestic litigation.
