Case Name: Surrender of Parental Rights over Case Number: SURRENDER OF PARENTAL RIGHTS

Please read carefully and complete the information below before signing this document. By completing this surrender of parental rights, I understand that my parental rights over the child, including the rights of care, custody and control of the child, will cease when the court approves this surrender. I also waive any right to receive any notices about future hearings about the child. I understand that after the court approves this surrender, all my parental obligations will be extinguished, except the obligation to pay any accrued unpaid child support. I understand that after the court approves this surrender in compliance with New Hampshire law, the surrender is final, and may not be revoked or set aside for any reason, unless the court finds that the surrender was obtained by fraud or duress, and that the withdrawal of the surrender is in the best interests of the adoptee. The failure of an adoptive parent to comply with an arrangement or understanding reached with the birth parent with respect to the post-surrender exchange of identifying or non-identifying information, communication or contact is not a reason to revoke or set aside a surrender. I have been informed that child placing agencies duly licensed pursuant to RSA 170-E are available to counsel me about my decision to surrender my parental rights. I have been provided legal counsel, unless waived with approval of the court. I have not received or been promised any money or anything of value for the completion of this surrender, except for payments permissible under New Hampshire law. They are as follows:

By signing this document below, I declare: h h h h h h that I am the parent of the above named child; that all the information on this surrender form is true; that I have read and understand the content of this document; that all of my questions have been answered by the court or its designee; that I wish this surrender of parental rights to take effect; and that (please check one of the following): I do not wish to receive confirmation of the final adoption of this child.
