7 years ago I filed for parental responsibility and child support because father said if I left he would swipe our children since we shared rights at that time. I moved on and have been scared. I gained all rights based on father did not appear or file a response. dad seemed caring so on the final orders I believed it would be in our children's best interest that I allow father parenting time. Although he does not take advantage of his opportunity. He has not paid child support in over six months. Additionally he has not seen the children in 6 years. Can I terminate his rights? if I can is he still responsible to pay child? our children are not being adopted? If I can terminate under what grounds?
