Birth Father Roles and Responsibilities When It comes to an Adoption in Kansas

By David Seamonson

If you’re considering adoption after finding out you’re unexpectedly pregnant, also, you have questions about expectations from a birth father and what birth father roles are. We can help answer your questions plus give you the pregnant help you need. Trying to figure out how to put a child up for adoption by yourself or with the birth father can be hard. Either way, you don’t have to do it alone. With or without the birth father, our local adoption agency will always provide top-quality services. Giving you the support, compassion, and kindness you deserve. Ideally, a birth father will respect your decision for adoption, including giving you the support you need through the adoption process.

Legally in Kansas (and other states), the birth father has the right to consent or disagree with adoption. If he disagrees with adoption, he would need to take legal action to prove if he is fit to raise the child and that he is committed to parenting, and the court might ask for further proof of why he is against your choice of adoption. Furthermore, adoption laws and regulations vary by state. So, it’s important if this happens, you talk with our adoption specialist, who can provide you with more information on this matter.

Birth Father Roles and Responsibilities

If the birth father has consented to adoption along with you. He can also be involved if you feel comfortable with it or if you feel like it would help you both with putting a child up for adoption. Communication is an important key in your adoption journey. Especially if you have a good relationship with the birth father, who wants to be involved voluntarily through the process.

You need to be able to express how you feel and what you need or want during your pregnancy with your birth father or with us at, Adoption Choices of Kansas without any worries of judgment. We want to make sure your adoption experience remains positive and loving. Therefore, when it comes to the support of the birth father, he should:

  • Transport you to and from appointments.
  • Help you sign paperwork or make tough decisions.
  • Assist you financially.
    • We can also provide you with financial assistance.
  • Help choose an adoptive family.
  • Be there when it comes to interviewing adoptive families.
  • Help you or support your decision when choosing an adoption plan.

The birth father can encourage you with your wants and needs. So, if you decide or want the birth father’s help with creating an adoption plan, he can choose between open, semi-open, or closed adoption. Regardless of the adoption option, the birth father should remain supportive, helpful, and overall accepting. After all, the final decision should be up to you and what you believe is best for you and your child.
