Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thanks so much for choosing this forum to pose your important legal question. I will do my best to give you some honest and accurate guidance.
Under California law this can be done on a voluntary basis as part of adoption proceedings. If this applies to your case, just let me know and I can provide you with information on how that works in California.
Otherwise, other than for involuntary relinquishment based on what is in the best interests of the child (i.e. parental abandonment, abuse, neglect), California law does not allow a biological parent to give up their duties and obligations toward their child (such as providing child support).
If you have any additional questions please feel free to write back and I would be glad to help however I can.
