  1. Terminating a person's parental rights is much more difficult that your husband's ex seems to believe. The fact that your husband was deported and will not be able to come back, at least not legally, may make it easier for her, but she cannot terminate his rights without filing a petition to terminate his rights, giving him proper legal notice, and having a trial. If your husband is able to continue sending child support, it will make it even more difficult for her.
