I am in MN and want my son's biological dad to sign over his rights.
My son's dad just got out of prison recently so I have no idea where
he is living now.
So how do I go about getting him to sign his rights over?
I'm very sure he will sign them over since he has not seen his son in 5 yrs.

You may want to visit the Family Law Law Center and read Terminating Parental Rights as good resource to learn more about this subject matter.

Not gonna happen, sorry. Your son's father cannot unilaterally "sign over" his parental rights. The days when the law would allow a man to father a child and then abandon it without a means of support are gone. If he doesn't want to be a part of his son's life that's sad but it's his prerogative. However, the courts will not terminate his rights and responsibilities with respect to the child except as part of a valid adoption in which another man steps up to take his place. Consult local counsel.
