How can I get my rights to my daughter back? 7 Answers as of May 09, 2013I was 20 at the time and I wanted my daughter to have some good insurance so me and the father signed our rights over to his mother and father in law and I was wondering can I get them back because the arrangement isn't going the way we planned it.

You should attempt to discuss the matter with the father's mother and her partner to see if they will voluntarily give you back your daughter. If you cannot work things out, your options would depend on what type of transfer of rights you signed. If you signed over temporary custody or guardianship of your daughter you can either terminate the agreement in writing, or you can ask the court to set aside the guardianship. If you consented to an adoption, it will be difficult or impossible to set aside, and you will need to work things out with the adoptive parents the best you can.

It depends on what you did. If they have guardianship then you can request the court to terminate the guardianship, however, if you gave up your parental rights by signing a voluntary relinquishment of parental rights that will make your situation very difficult if not impossible to change. It depends upon the circumstances. I would seek legal assistance immediately.

Maybe. It depends on how you signed the rights over. Did you allow them to adopt your children? If so, you can't get them back. Did you give a power of attorney? If so, you can terminate it. Did you consent to a guardianship? If so, you have to go to court and ask for the guardianship to be removed.

Depends on how you "signed your rights" if it was a guardianship is can be terminated. If it was a termination that's a bit more difficult. Best thing to do would be to take whatever document you have and consult with an attorney.
