I am in the process of getting a divorce. I have had sole legal and physical custody of my 9 year old daughter since 2005 without any child support. Her father, my estranged husband has been living in Arizona since '04 with very little to no contact withher in the past 2 years. She does not want contact with him. Is there a way I can terminate his rights and have my fiance adopt her once we are married? He loves her like his own and she calls him "daddy" already.estranged husband has no visitation and has no means to even travel to NJ, let alone live here.
