hey i was wondering if anyone knew the legal end better than myself if you could answer this... can you and the father write an agreement on paper and have it noterized and that how you handle it so its not all lawyers and going to court. we both know he is going to sign over his rights and all but we were just wondering if that is legal or not. we want to do the easiest way for us bcs wed like to stay calm with this whole matter. or does the court need to get us involved or us go there bcs arent they the ones representing the baby? thanks! kara

Bear,
Are or have you been to court over this issue? What do you mean by he will give up his rights? Is he going to sign a (Adoption Conscent)? You can write a document up but it has to be signed in front of the notary and then he or she will notorize it. Is he wanting to give up his rights to the child?

Bear,
What you are saying is that you are typing up a document which plainly states that he wishes to give up all his parental rights to the child? My daughters dad just gave up his rights but I had a Lawyer and we were going through the court system. I was taking him to court for childsupport. Then my Lawyer told the dad that we were never going to get anything out of him so just do us a favor and sign a Adoption Conscent which he did. Basically her dad didn't want to pay childsupport or anything else so he took the easy way out but the best thing out of all of this he can never take her away from me and she never has to deal with him in her life. Her dad has 9 kids by different women and he doesn't do anything for any of them. My daughter is 6 yrs. old to and is not as young as your child. If this is what you both agree on then I say do it.

maywest!
im so happy to hear that he can never touch your daughter! that must feel good to know. but im upset that he left you with no money!thanks for writing back i have a few Q's. why an adoption paper though how does that play a role in it? so if i do write a letter with my sons father and get it notarized we dont have to go through a court? we just dont want to get all this court stuff involved and lawyers. i just dont know how to go about it either. well thanks for writing and i hope your guys are doing GREAT!best of luck and health to you this new year. hope to hear from you soon. kara

Bear,
It is called a Adoption Conscent which states he clearly gives up all his rights to the child. As far as you typing up a letter you both agree up on and have it signed in front of a notary is legal. And if you ever have to go into the court system later the letter would be your agreement and would stand up in court. Good luck to you and I hope everything works out.

Bear,
I'm glad I was able to help you out. I don't know of any specific web sites just type in different things like IL childsupport laws, IL child custody laws, ect. That is what I did. Hang in there.
