If you are under eighteen and have a child can your legal guardian put your baby up for adoption without your consent?
No. even if you are under the AGE of 18 YOU are still the legal guardian to this child. You cannot be forced to give your child up, nor can anyone else make the decision for y…ou, UNLESS you are mentally unstable or will have your child at risk. then the child CAN be taken. But I must say, if you ARE under 18, you have to think of the best interest of this child. can you financially take care of this child.(VERY VERY VERY expensive) Will this babys father be there? could you give this child everything it needed? If there were any types of health problems with this child could you pay medical expenses and emotionally handle it? You have to look at the whole aspect of the situation. and if you are unsure about any answers to the previous questions then it would not hurt to look into adoption. There are sooo many(married, stable) families out there that would love to have a child but couldnt. And if you are not ready for a child, you could give the greatest gift to a family... a child... But good luck, and i hope i have helped! No. I am under 18 and am pregnant. I have decided to give my baby a better home through adoption. However, it is MY decision. You guardians cannot make you do it. YOU are the one who signs the adoption papers and has the right over your child. Also, in many states if you are under the age of 18, and you are pregnant and unmarried, you're considered the only legal parent of the child. The birthfather only has rights if he supports you and somehow contributes to the baby or you during your pregnancy. Your guardian may not be able to make the call, but if you are unable to provide or care for the child or fail to properly care for your child or if you are in currently in legal trouble (especially violence or drugs) the child may be taken by CPS after he/she is born.
A woman can put a baby up for adoption without the father's consentin Utah. This has caused some controversy, and the Governorrecently signed off on a partial fix in an effort… to close theloophole, forcing a residency requirement of 90 days.
Legally, probably not. Not unless they have legal custody of the minor's child.
Can a single mother give her child up for adoption without the consent of the father if he is an illegal immigrant in the state of Kansas?
In Kansas, if the father did not begin paying child six month prior to the birth of the child, he cannot challenge an adoption. Guess how many know this?
no, she must approve
No. The adoption would require the mother's voluntary consent unless a court deems her to be an unfit parent and terminates her parental rights. See related question link.
While the biological father's consent is usually required, there are sometimes extenuating circumstances in which the stepfather can adopt without his consent. For example, if… the father has had no contact with the child in years, if the father's address is unknown, if the father has been proven to be abusive to the child, etc. But even in cases such as these, a lot of it varies from one state to another, as well as how the case is presented, etc. There are just too many variables involved to give a "yes" or "no" answer. I would advise consulting an attorney on this. Quite often, many attorneys don't even charge for an initial consulting fee, so you may be able to get the information you need without having to pay for it if money is a concern.
Can the father sign into adoption of son to grandmother who has custody of child without mother's consent?
In almost all cases you need the mother's consent before the adoption can take place. However, if there are extenuating circumstances, you can at least try. For example, if th…e mother has abandoned the children and they have not heard from her for a number of years, you may stand a good chance. Just keep in mind a lot of it depends on the state laws where you live, as well as other things that the judge will take under consideration.
Yes, but only if the birth father's parental rights have been terminated by the courts.
now a stepfather can't adopt a child without the concent of the child's father
No. The child has 2 parents not just one so both need to give their consent.
That depends on the law where you live. It can vary from state to state and country to country. No one can give you an accurate answer until you provide that information.
Only if you live in Utah, there notification is enough. You can goto court and see if you can get his parental rights terminated.
No. Only in Utah is his consent not needed, just a notification.
