First, know that every state has different laws regarding adoption and the termination of a father’s parental rights. To give you an answer we would need to ask you some questions to determine how a specific father’s rights can be terminated.

Adoption Attorneys will ask these questions:

  • Are you married to the mother?
  • Do you reside together?
  • Have you assisted with financial support during the pregnancy?
  • Do you have a history of domestic violence, particularly during the pregnancy?

These are some of the questions that the adoption professional that we refer you to will ask so that they can advise you if you need to give consent to the adoption in order for the adoption plan to proceed.
