My husband is wanting to adopt my 16 year old daughter. My ex husband has not been in contact with my daughter in at least 4 years. What is the process of terminating his rights so my husband can adopt my daughter?
Your first step is getting a lawyer, as you will fail without one. If the father consents it likely should go smoothly. If he won't, and he hasn't paid support or seen the child in a year, the adoption judge, after service on the father, can terminate his rights.See question

My divorce decree states that I am to pay child support on the first of every month until my child is 18 & is not in high school. My daughter turns 18 on July 1st and she graduated high school on May 26 2016. Do I make a payment on July 1st?
My answer is no. However Mr Zezima's advice might save you thousands spent on lawyers should the other parent disagree. Sometimes the practical answer can be smarter than the legal answer.See question
