Because they realize they are not capable of caring for an infant at that particular time of their life. Perhaps they are not financially able, or not in good health, or any number of legitimate reasons..

She is not doing it to make her life easier but to make the child's life better, it is an unselfish, courageous and loving act.

Answer . \nIf "giving up custody" refers to a parent voluntarily relinquishing their parental rights to a minor child or children the consequences of a TPR being granted is that the parent loses all rights to the minor child/children permanently. A TPR cannot be rescinded by the parent nor revoked by the court.\n. \nTPR decrees are not for the purpose of allowing a non custodial parent to be relieved of his or her financial obligations to minor children. They are usually only granted by the court to allow minor children to become eligible for adoption.

Should you give your baby up for adoption if your ex doesn't show any interest in you and you don't want the baby but you know it would hurt him because he wanted a child?

Answer . If his name is on the birth certificate, he will certainly need to know before you can allow the child to be adopted. If he has not shown any interest in the child, and is not paying child support, then it is entirely reasonable for you to seek a better home for your child. Just wanting a baby is not enough for parenthood (as you seem to know!)--raising a child into an adult takes a lot of time and effort. Your baby's needs come before the ex's wants. And, he owes you child support for the entire period until the child is 18.

No you do not. If you gave them up or lost them, you legally have no right concerning anything with them, legally. Look over the paperwork the courts gave you. Make better choices next time.

The Custodial Parent may not move and or interrupt your visitation rights.

When I give up parental rights do you have to pay child support in the state of Maryland?

It may help to understand the point of view of the law. You have a child. You are responsible to care for and provide forthat child until it becomes an adult. Almost nothing elsematters . It doesn't matter if the child doesn't live with you,it doesn't matter if you don't get to see the child, it doesn'tmatter if the child hates you and wishes you were dead, it doesn'tmatter if the child doesn't know you from Adam's off ox. That'swhat child support is for, to provide for the child. If you didn'twant this responsibility, the court will reason, you shouldn't havebeen doing the sorts of things that might result in you having achild in the first place... it's not like we have no idea whatcauses that. If the child is provided for sufficiently without you paying childsupport, then the court has discretion in the matter. However, just"giving up your parental rights" doesn't absolve you from therequirement to make any existing or future child support paymentsthat may be mandated by a court.

How do teens suffer emotionally after giving their child up for adoption?

Same as for adults. They are scared the baby wont forgive them, ending up with a bad family (they can seem good in the beginning but you never know what happens down the line), the regrets you feel when you want to see you child but can't, always wondering what they look like, sound like, smell like, what are they doing right now, what if they get seriously ill and you'll never know etc. And usually that longing and fear for when they turn 18 and is allowed to contact you - will they or wont they? Do I want him/her to contact me and what will I say if they are mad at me? The guilt of leaving them. Even if you have a open adoption they are not legally enforceable. Once the papers are signed, it's up to the new parents. Most agencies don't tell the birth parents that fact until afterwards. And for teens the surrounding family and friends don't always get it but just think they did the right choice since they are just kids. Some get depressions and drink more or party more to forget.

Why do most parents give up there child for adoption?

There are many reasons parents give their kids up sadly enough. One if the main reasons being that they can't afford to care for them or it was an unwanted pregnancy and they decided abortion wasnt the right way to go. Another reason can be because they think they arent "fit enough" to be parents. By "fit enough", I mean that they dont know how to raise a kid or dont want to learn. One last reason I can think of is that they might be drug addicts, but most of the time kids get taken away if thats the case. The parents just dont give them away.

Can a parent force an underage child to give up baby for adoption?

Do you have to give up custody of your child if your child transfers school?

Well, this is actually a little complicated to answer since the question is a little to vague. So let me see if I can break this down: Let's talk about the long shot scenario: You are the custodial parent and you want your child to attend school in the same school district as the non-custodial parent; you are now going to have your child move in with the non-custodial parent so they can attend said school. So, the answer would be yes, you will have to give up primary custody of your child in order for them to live in the non-custodial parents home. This is what could happen: a. Adjust custody order to reflect joint custody; have visitation rights. Just understand that whoever has more "nights" with the child each year will be considered the custodial parent. As a non-custodial parent, you could be obligated to pay child support. b. Adjust custody order to reflect that non-custodial parent will have primary custody of your child. They will now be the custodial parent and you, as a non-custodial parent, may be obligated to provide child support. Easy scenario: You just want to move to a new school district, and as the custodial parent your child naturally moves with you. Then, no, you do not have to give up custody of your child. What you must do is provide the non-custodial parent with your change of address as well as a new home phone number if it changes.

How do you give up your parental right to a adopted child?

I read your question as asking how to give up parental rights to an adopted child and not how to adopt a child. You haven't added enough detail about your situation for anything but a general answer. It would be important to know if there is a parent who is willing and able to take full responsibility for the child and if the reason for the termination of your parental rights is for the purposes of adoption by another adult. Courts are concerned with the best interest of the child. Courts are always reluctant to allow the voluntary termination of parental rights unless the reason is to facilitate an adoption. They generally recognize that a child is entitled to the support of both parents. An adoptive parent is the legal parent and has all the responsibilities to provide for the child that a biological parent would have. The possibility of obtaining approval from a court is further reduced if the custodial parent is receiving any kind of assistance. Many courts do not allow it at all unless the child will be adopted by another responsible adult or the remaining parent has the resources necessary to fulfill the needs of the child. You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in family law who can review your situation and explain your options.

Can you adopt a child that you already have custody of if the mother doesn't want to give up her parental rights?

If you are not the biological father of the child then no the mother still retains her rights as the child's maternal mother and therefore can put a stop to you adopting her child. In such cases the mother would have be proven enough of an unfit parent that her rights are legally stripped from her but that is very slim chance unless her behavior puts the child in danger. Now once the child reaches a certain age (which is different in different states and countries) the child may decide they want you to adopt them and may choose to be adopted by you in which case the court would (usually) honor the child's decision and allow the adoption to proceed.

Do you have to get the consent of both parents to give a unborn child up for adoption?

Yes Sometimes implied consent is sufficient: if, for example, the birth father does not support the birth mother emotionally and financially through her pregnancy, and does not involve himself in the life of the child after birth, he can have his rights terminated through implied consent. This isn't always the case, and the law on this varies a bit from state to state.
