How does my daughter's biological father voluntarily terminate his parental rights?

Asked about 4 years ago - Bloomsburg, PA

My daughter's biological father wants to terminate his rights, and my husband wants to adopt her. We are all in agreement, but none of us knows where to begin. What do we have to do?

    Answered . You need to go through step-parent adoption proceedings. This is a fairly simple procedure for a lawyer to handle on your behalf, although the paperwork is time consuming. Most local family and domestic lawyers in your county can handle this matter for you.
