My daughters biological father is in Leavenworth Federal Prison, and will be released on May 6th, of 2018.He has had no contact for at least 5 years. Never any support.He had put her life and my life in danger by selling drugs,guns and God knows what else from my home.He was extremely violent in the relationship too.
When he was arrested he had threatened me that our lives would end once he was out.I want him off records as her Father.I have a Fiance' and we plan on marrying in 2017.He was wanting to adopt her as he feels she is his daughter.He is fabulous with her, and every bit a Father that she could want or need.
You appear to have a case to sever the father's parental rights. However, there are many questions which must be answered. Is the father a Native American, if yes this could complicate matters. What is your evidence for the abuse? Does the arrest report indicate the threat? Were you listed as a witness in the criminal case against the father?
Contact a lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer, contact legal aid. Good luck.
