  • What if I am the legal (not biological) father of the child.
    The child has now established a relationship with the biological father and our relationship is no more. I wish to relinquish my parental rights and obligations, and the biological father will voluntarily establish paternity. What forms must be filed? Is this done with the single form AOP?

  • My daughter’s father was deported to England. He said he signed VAP. Can she get a British passport & dual citizenship because he is a British citizen? She was born in Chicago.

  • Right at the end where she states that it’s important to prove that you love your baby gives the game away. And the hospital never encouraged you to wait or seek legal representation they’ll tell you that sign it right that in there otherwise you don’t love your child.

  • Never take the the paternity test NEVER TAKE IT and they CANT MAKE YOU take it once they HAVE YOUR DNA YOU WILL BE SUJECT TO THERE EXTORTION TACTICS

  • 1. Any “woman” stating ‘Why does my daughter need to know who her father is…’…
    Demonstrates the main problem right there…..

    2. It’s ALWAYS about the freaking MONEY.

  • How often does the birth mother use emotional blackmail to force a male to sign the acknowledgement form where she knows he may not be the father???

  • Hi, great video! I am a 16yo American, we wanted to do a VAP with my biological father but we all lived in Europe. Can we do a VAP if I have today 16yo or it’s only a short time after the birth?

  • Thank you for your great videos! I have a question on a different scenario, what if the 2 years have already passed, is there a way to challenge the VPA?

  • These agencies, including all so-called organizations with an identification number proves the man/woman doesn’t own the accounts associated with it but the foreign United States does. In law the owner pays the bills, unless they have these fraudulently signed agreements to pay a debt that can’t be paid. There’s no money, only insurance aka investment contracts and they’re all bonds. You’re only responsible for paying the interest on the insurance bond and the so-called bank owes the full balance at maturity, unless they actually paid man/woman anything up front.
