What rights does the father of the baby have?

If we know who he is, and we can locate him, he does have a right to know about the adoption. At times, a birthfather may be hesitant about adoption at first, but then realizes that he may not have the time or resources to parent the child. Usually he just needs reassurance that he will not be shut out of the process and can be involved if he chooses. We will speak to him for you if you would prefer and guide him through the process. An attorney is also available to advise him of his rights and responsibilities and execute the necessary paperwork. If he is not available, an attorney has a legal process to handle that situation as well.
