I have sole legal and primary physical care of my son. His father is court ordered to pay child support (30) a month and has never paid in 4 years. I have a criminal protective order so he can only call M,W,F and hardly does. As of now he is on the run because he has 2 arrest warrants for failure to appear/report to jail sentence. On top of being a fugitive he is currently in the process of being charged with 2 class c felonies Intimidation w/a deadly weapon for shooting up a bar and his ex-fiances parents house, his 2nd domestic assault (I was the first victim), and class d felony, felony possession of a firearm x4. He hasn't seen my son in over a year as well. I live in Alaska and he lives in Iowa. My current husband wants to adopt him, but I don't know if we have enough as he will call my son from time to time.
You can't terminate your husband's parental rights. Only a court could do that. You need to consult with an experienced adoption attorney and they will explain the adoption process and how it may apply in your situation.
