Can a parent sign over rights to an unborn child?

Asked over 4 years ago - Lexington, KY

The babys dad wrote on a piece of paper stating he wished to sign his rights away wanting nothing to do with the child. The paper was notarized does this make this document legal?

    Answered . For a parent to give up all responsibility for a child, the parent should seek a court order.

    The piece of paper in question would not absolve the father from being responsible to pay child support, for example.
