Confused PARENTAL RIGHTS -- How a mother would sign over her rights?

I would like to know how a mother would sign over her rights or just give the child to the father? She wants nothing to do with the child. The father doesn't want any child support or anything he just wants the child.

Are you asking a question? Does this situation pertain to you?

Both parties would visit family court if need be with the father petitioning for sole custody of the child.

The mother would explain that she does not want to raise the child and wishes to relinquish her parental rights to the child. Bear in mind that child support may still be ordered (although for women that requirement is often waived by family court judges for some reason).

Barring that, a simple agreement would be sufficient if they both wish to make their own decisions and do not wish to involve the court and have a family court judge run and rule their lives for the next 18 years.

Stay out of the court room. All she has to do is let the father take the child..period. He can raise the child, etc without the mother. I can't imagine a woman not wanting her child, but it does happen (we just saw that played out in court on national tv...at least in your case the mom is giving the father the child and not killing it like she did)

Why can't you imagine a woman not wanting her child? Is it because you too have been brainwashed by our societal primal conditioning that women are naturally the nurturers?

I've met a staggering number of women who have absolutely no maternal instinct whatsoever. It's not at all uncommon. Unfortunately, family court promulgates the hype that a woman is better suited to nurture a child than a man. This is patently false and misleading, but the fact is, it's accepted as the norm.

There really is no solid scientific data that proves that - aside from the very primal basic need for a food source (which is really what the mother is, and why it's viewed upon as the infant "bonding more" with the mother than the father).

I never said I believed that a woman SHOULD have all parental rights to a child,I said that I PERSONALLY can't imagine a woman not wanting her child..............doesn't mean it's right or wrong, it was my PERSONAL opinion......................as was your statement above.

I also PERSONALLY believe that MOST men are better parents than women, but again that is MY personal opinion.

Calm down. Relax.

Someone merely asked you why you couldn't imagine a woman not wanting her child. Nobody mentioned you said anything about believing women "should" have "all parental rights". Someone was merely pointing out that society brainwashes us all to believe women are more maternal, nurturing of the two genders, which is patently inconclusive.

Actually, the post you responded to is not "personal opinion" It's based on realistic data. Babies "bond" more with the people they know to be "mom" merely because there is breast milk available. If men could produce milk, infants would "bond" more with men.

Take the food source away and there's not a human baby on this planet that has a preference between which gender it will bond with.

So if the mother doesn't breast feed (which a large number of them don't) then the child won't bond with the mother because there is no breast milk available?

that's a screwed up assumption!

I feel so sorry for you. You must have been really hurt by your mother, to have such an agressive point of view about mothers not needing to be a part of their childrens lives. Poor baby!
