It is difficult to give guidance here with out any additional facts.  Is he voluntarily giving up his rights? Is it so that someone else can adopt and care for the child? In the latter case it is usuallydone inthe same proceeding. Courts do not take termination of parental rights lightly and do not let parents terminate to avoid say paying child support. They will terminate when there is a potential harm to the child (parent a convicted murderer, etc.). Seek legal advice in your area.   Good luck.
