Most of the time they only allow them to sign over rights if there is a step-father there willing to adopt the child.

I don't know... but I'm so sorry. That must have been terrible to discover.

Why is that?

Really? That's odd.

My mother had her ex's rights to my sister terminated by abandonment. It was a very, verryyy long process.

My mother had my sperm donor sign over his rights in their divorce. You need to talk to a family law lawyer and find out the laws in your state.

I'm not sure. That's just what my lawyer told me when I was contemplating. And at the time I wasn't in a position to want to marry anyone, so I just...did nothing. Didn't file for child support so that way he couldn't get visitation.

O.o



How is it he said she said? They should have went through his computer. Lazy ass cops. I'd report him again.



I'm not sure how Oregon is, but when BD tried to sign over his rights to dd in california, he couldn't because somebody had to adopt her at the same time.

Probably. But I've always been told it's a very aggravating process regardless.

Most states will not "bastardize" a child for lack of a better word. Someone needs to adopt when terminating rights.

In the event that something happens to the single person holding rights, it helps establish who is then responsible for the child. That is a preference of the courts.
