Default Florida: Signing Rights Over. Child Support. Child's best Intrest.

I have only seen my son 2 in 5 years. He hates me. I would like to sign my rights away, only beacuse I dont like that my son in emotionally hurt by his mother not allowing me to see him. I am behind on child support only because I have had no job and cant even feed myself most days.

The other thing that bothers me is that she has moved 10 times in three years creating a very unstable home for my son and the other two children. The man she is in a relationship with has been in prision several times because he is a drug dealer and abuser. The last time I seen my son he was cussing and was telling me all about sexual things that she had told him.

I dont know what to do. I dont want my son living in that, but I cant help him and he hates me. What do I do? How can I sign my rights away in the state of Florida? What can I do about her?

I wish to inform you that you may sign the termination of your rights over the child and then your parental rights will terminate. In this case, you may not exercise your parental rights and may even not be liable to pay child support if the rights are being relinquished so that child may be taken up in adoption. In this regard, a petition may be filed in court and court will decide after looking at best interest of child. Alternatively you may also seek child custody on the ground that best interest of child is served if child is living with you. You may show to court that child is living with a person who has been in prison and it will be in the best interest of the child if child lives with you.

Please ignore Affa's grossly erroneous "advice". He leads one to believe its easy to just terminate your own rights and magically stop having to financially support your children. Terminating parental rights is not as easy as people believe.

It's difficult to believe that men still think if only they terminate their rights they won't have to pay child support anymore. It's not as simple as that. Just because a man is too weak willed to fight for their children, doesn't mean they didn't help bring them into the world and are legally obligated to financially support them so us taxpayers don't have to.

Firstly, judges rarely, if ever, terminate parental rights. Secondly, even when they do, child support does not stop. You are still financially obligated to help pay for your children, whether you want to be a father or not.

You can't sign away your own rights. A judge has to determine that. It's highly unlikely you will be successful in your endeavor.
