Will the termination of parental rights be able to happen?: I have sole parental responsibility. Bio father is willing to terminate his rights. Man who has been raising child since day 1 is willing to assume responsibility. Child is on mediciad. (Don't know if state help makes difference) Have been together 7 years however we are not married. Will the court allow the termination to happen for father figure to adopt her? I want to know general probability so I don't waste $400 to file.

William’s answer: I agree with counsel. Step-parent adoptions are often the most easy to accomplish. That said, there is no guarantee that the termination of parental rights will come into fruition without the adoption. I would not bet on it without having it lined up. Good luck.

William’s answer: It depends. If he has not established paternity through a petition in circuit court, then he has no "say" over what you do with the minor child. Notwithstanding, you would be well-advised to speak with an attorney in your jurisdiction regarding the specifics of your case. Good luck.

I received in the mail Notice of Intent to Suspend Drivers Licen For Non Payment of Support, what can i do?: the letter says i have to file a petition in 20 days or tell them its a mistake, its obviously a mistake, i have huge overpayments in child support. I have no idea why they sent me that letter, child support is continually being taken out of my check automatically, and there has never been no issues. can i just write a letter and tell them its a mistake and attach paperwork showing i have a 4k overpayment?

William’s answer: You need to review this matter with an attorney located in your jurisdiction. It sounds like it's a letter from CSE/DOR but it's not clear from your question. Proceed without representation at your own risk. Good luck.
