My question involves paternity law for the State of: Alabama.
I'm a mother of a 5 month old daughter. Her father and I are splitting up, he has agreed to give up his parental rights. I don't want child support from him, I don't want anything to do with him, and we both decided it would be easier on us and better for our daughter for him to be out of the picture, since he is moving to Florida.
How would he go about giving up his rights? Paternity has been established. His name is on her birth certificate. We aren't married and never were.
Does there have to be a step-dad involved? Someone else willing to take up the fathers side of support? Or can I just be the sole guardian of her?
