If the mother of a child has sole custody and the father has visitation rights can she give the child away to someone else besides the father without the fathers consent?
No she can't. If her ex is a good man and a good father when he has visitation rights then she has no right to tear the child away from him. He can fight it in a court of law. Before one acts out of haste they should consider the child and what their feelings are. They may not understand the total issue, but they do know who their mother and father are and that's all they need to know. The two of you should put the child first and each other second.
These are only reasons why the father should no longer have further contact with his child:
- Sexual abuse
- Not turning up when he is suppose to take the child or visit the child leaving the child feeling alone and depressed
- The father hangs around with a bad gang or bad friends
- If the father does drugs and can't be clean enough when he comes to visit his child.
- If the father is an alcoholic and can't come to visit the child when sober

In all 50 US states the law presumes that an unmarried birth mother retains sole custodial rights to a child until the court rules otherwise. This applies to minors as well as… to adults. Generally, if the parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody and control until the father can establish his paternity. Remember, a child's mother can always be identified by medical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was not legally married at the time of the birth he can establish his paternity through a DNA test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court. Once paternity is established in court, the father can request visitations or custody through the court. If the mother retains physical custody she can request that the court issue a child support order. If the father gets physical custody he can request a child support order.

If the mother nelgects the child and the father was not found unfit to take care of the child can the state give custody of the child to the grandmother without the consent from the father?
The court may award custody to whomever they feel would act in the best interests of the child and that does not have to be a biological parent. If you do not agree with that …decision, you do have the right to appeal, but appellate guidelines move quickly and in addition, you would need to provide compelling evidence to the court why the child would be better off with you. Consult an attorney and do it quickly. You need expert legal assistance.
That depends on the legal custody agreement in place. If no custody agreement has been hammered out in court, you should contact the family court in your county of residence, …or an attorney, for information on filing papers to assign temporary guardianship of your child to your sister. You may both have to appear in court so the judge can determine whether or not such an arrangement is in the best interests of the child. In other words, cover your bases. Fathers do have rights and if he finds out that you are violating his rights, you may be facing a custody battle.
