My husband is on my baby birth certificate listed as the father since the bio dad walked out of the hospital the day I went into premature labor. No reason why just walked out and never visited her in the hospital. Two years goes past then he requested a DNA after having minimal involvement. No doctor visits no financial support no medical support. He has never even bought a single diaper or wipe at that point and still has never. It’s been over a year since he was proven to be bio dad no kind of support at all has been offered or given. Child support wouldn’t even help me without an lawyer. I’m not rich and I have 6 kids ranging from 20’s to her. Bio dad now gets visits but still no help at all. So I was wondering if we could actually get involuntary parental rights terminated due to the fact that he has not helping financially in almost 4 years. He is neglecting his responsibilities to help provide a home, food, clothing, and daycare. Her basic needs. He wants validation with no responsibilities that goes along with being a parent. He usually sees her 2-4 hours a week he hasn’t kept her over night since February. I always have to feed her at pick up b/c he only gives her junk.
No, your husband can't adopt your daughter. This is just a general statement, based on what you wrote. Feel free to consult with legal counsel to review your options.
