My husband and I are looking to do a step parent adoption for our two boys. My husband and I have been together since 07-1998 and have been married since 07-2002. We have two girls togrther as well. I'd like to mention that though our boys know of the situations with their biological father my husband has always been their dad and has been activly rasing them since Nathan was 2.5 and justin was 6months, we had been dating five months when he made the choice to be their Daddy. I think this process will be relativley simple for Justin who is 10, his father passed away when he was 7months old. The situation is more complicated with our 12 year old Nathan I have tried to find his father to get him to release his rights, to no avail . The state collects child support from his father when they can find him, we have not received a payment since April and have no desire to collect further child support. Nathan's father had contact with us in the first year but since has made only one atempt to contact us when Nathan was 6. I am curious what our rights are?
