Hello,

I was wondering how do i go about getting my ex's right terminated? He has never seen nor meet his 5 year old son. He never showed up to any of the court hearings about child support so there was no paternity test taken..the courts granted child support but he only pays when he can.... We do not have any contact whats so ever? .....My husband would like to adopt my son since he has been there since he was 2 months old.....can you please help?

Your ex-what? Ex-husband? Ex-boyfriend? If it's an ex-boyfriend and paternity was never established, then he has no parental rights. If your (current) husband wants to adopt the child, you should consult with a local attorney who handles adoptions (which are not good do-it-yourself projects).

You may want to visit the Family Law Center and read:Parental Rights: Unmarried Fathers and Adoption and Child Visitation, Child Custody and Unmarried Fathers as good resources to learn more about this subject matter. For further clarification on your specific situation, I suggest you consult with a local Family Law Lawyer to advise you of your options.
FindLaw's Legal Heads-Up! newsletter can provide you with the legal resources you need to make informed decisions when law touches aspects of your everyday life.
