Which forms to send is going to depend on the specific facts of your case. You have to send him a copy of every form that you are going to file with the court.
You will always need the Affidavit of Relinquishment and the Petition for Relinquishment. You'll fill out the Mother's Interrogatories and send it to him along with a blank copy of the Father's Interrogatories. He'll need to send you back a copy once he's filled it out.
You do not need the forms about Publication Notice if you know where the father is. Those are for a situation where the parent seeking termination cannot locate the other parent. You do not need the Petition to Terminate the Parent-Child Relationship if the father will agree and sign the paperwork. If he refuses to sign the Relinquishment Petition, you need that and the Notice to Terminate Parent-Child Relationship.
