How do I, mom, apply for termination of parental rights of the biological father now that he was deported to Jamaica? The biological father's name was recently added to my son's birth certificate due to a mandatory court case resulting in proof of paternity. He has never provided any sort of care for my son except for a couple hundred dollars for clothes and my son is now 11. How do I go about terminating his parental rights? My son resides with me in Georgia and I have always been the sole provider for him. I have never received child support either. If anything were to happen to me, I would want my immediate family to receive guardianship over my son without any dilemmas. My son and I are U.S. citizens.
Thank you in advance.
