It is necessary that the other parent brings an action to terminate your parental rights and you can agree to make it relatively simple. You can't just sign something to do that, it has to be done by the court. You do understand that this is irrevocable step - you will not be the child's parent any more in a legal sense, only biologically. Also, you need to agree that you have abandoned the child for more than 6 months.

You should file for full custody of your children in family court. In court, the father can tell the judge that he relinquishes all legal rights to the children. Otherwise, you can still have an agreement signed between both of you stating that the father relinquishes all parental rights to the children.

In terms of relinquishing custody of your child, your local family court should have the appropriate paperwork. You may want to make a visit to your local family court and discuss with one of the clerks what paperwork is needed and whether they can provide this to you.

It is extremely difficult to remove parental rights or to relinquish them in California. The reasons are two-fold: 1) the best interests of the child are to have 2 parents (so adoption would be a good reason for this); and 2) the state has an interest in the financial support of the child. Two good reasons for terminating are adoption and a finding that the parents continued relationship is not in the best interest of the child. One other possibility is abandonment (father has to not have had contact or supported the child for at least 1 year, and your efforts to enforce child support have failed). So start with the nature of why you are seeking to free the child (adoption, juvenile safety, or abandonment). Your local family law center at the local court can help.

There are no such papers. The only ways to terminate a parent's rights are to have someone adopt the child or have the state terminate parental rights because the parent is unfit and unable to adequately care for the child.

You would have to commence an action for a Termination of Parental rights by serving and filing a Petition in that regard. It is not a simple process and would require a hearing. If contested, a trial would be required. Ultimately, the Court must find that the Termination of Parental Rights is in the best interests of the child.

There are no forms available. You need to consult with an attorney about the details of your specific situation, what you mean by "give up all rights", and in what context, and the attorney can ask whatever questions they need to advise you competently.
