Does a termination of parental expire if adoption was rejected?

Q: My mother began an adoption process to adopt my nephew in 2016 the biological father signed a termination of parental rights. My moms attorney filed the paperwork and ended up getting very ill. The adoption was rejected because of missing paper work. I know we now have to resubmit all the paperwork like finger prints and home study but will we need to get the termination of parental right signed all over again? Or would it still be valid? Biological Father is no where to be found.

How do I remove my daughter's father off her birth certificate?

Q: She was born in 2005, he vanished the day after she was born. His name is on the birth certificate, however. He was abusive and forced himself upon me and since she was born, doesn't know her nor does she know him.

A: David's Answer:
If he is actually the child's biological parent, then you cannot simply remove his name from the birth certificate until his parental rights have been terminated. The only way to achieve this in the non-fostercare setting is to file for a stepparent adoption. If this is the approach you wish to take, call a Bronx Adoption attorney to schedule an appointment.

Is it possible for a biological father to relinquish his custodial rights of an unborn child to the biological mother?

Q: My friend and I decided to conceive a child through insemination done at home without physical contact or any intimate relationship involved. The agreement was that he would be involved in the child's life, but my wife and I would be the custodial parents. Unfortunately, we did not go to a doctor for the insemination process nor did we complete any legal documentation beforehand, but he is still willing to relinquish his rights as long as we have something in writing stating he can be part of the child's life. Please advise. Thank you.
