Unhappy Relinguishing Parental Rights

My husband had an affair. there is a 50/50 chance the child is his. Thats fine but he wants to give up all rights to the child. He is willing to pay child support if need be but he doesnt want anything to do with the child because of conflicts it will cause within our own family and marriage which is more important to him. How do we begin to go about doing this.

Very sad.

The courts do not generally allow parents to terminate their rights to a child unless it is in the courts best interest to keep the parent and child apart, as in a case of abuse. A court recognizes the value to a child of a relationship with both parents.

A child deserves two parents. I hope there will be a way that your husband will not have to choose between his current family and an innocent child who deserves the love of both parents. Bottom line is the child will suffer because of the inability of adults who brought him into the world to find a way to get a long.

Good luck to you all in this difficult situation.
