Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney here to assist you.
If the child is adopted, all parental rights of the biological father are terminated. Thus, the father would have no rights to the child - including any visitation rights.
However, if you give him some type of custody or visitation rights, you may be giving him some leverage to seek to reinstate his rights, etc.
I would not recommend entering into any agreement with the father. If you want to let the child visit the father, etc., you can do so without any agreement.
This will prevent you from giving up any rights and you can get the child back any time you want.
so what do we need to do to get her enrolled in school, in oklahoma. What happens
in case of medical emergency
is there anything that says we have to sign any forms of temporary or joint
gaurdianship to the birth father for school enrollement or medical emergencies?
