    He can legally relinquish whatever rights he may or may not have regarding the child.

    That DOES NOT relieve him of any parental responsibilities, should it ever be established that he actually is the father.

    That said, if he doesn't know about the child, he wouldn't know there is anything to sign over.

    He can try but if child support is involved he may not be allowed to. He should however do the DNA testing to at least see if the child is his.

    Well, if she has him sign over rights, he's going to know about the baby. Would he be an idiot to do this? Yes. Signing over rights does not stop child support should she seek it.

    If paternity was never established, there is nothing to "sign away".  If mom doesn't ask for the court to order a paternity test it simply wouldn't be an issue.  It doesn't matter what mom says, it matters what the paternity test proves. No test, no proof.

    Nobody can "sign rights over" for any child.  Only a judge can do that.  Without going to court and getting a custody order, both parents have joint custody.

    If he never did a paternity test and never signed the affidavit of paternity, then he isnt legally the father, regardless of what the mother "says". Until it is confirmed he is the father, he has NO rights to sign over.
