Wondering how hard terminating parental rights can be in CT.
My daughter is 5 years old and her father hasn't seen her since she was 1 year old. He stopped showing up for visitation and owes over 14,000 in child support over the years. My husband wants to adopt her we've been married 3 years and he is the ONLY father she's ever known. So it's her daddy to her.
Would this be grounds to terminate?
How hard would it be?
BIO dads name is on the birth certificate.
If it matters we were NEVER married.
He may willingly sign over his rights, but I just dont know if he will or not and if he doesn't i still want to go through with it.
Please advise me.
