  • Your dh needs to contact a attorney... asap...
     Dh's ex can NOT have another adopt his child without his permission...PERIOD!
    CS monies should be documented and that is why most use the courts....
     Contact an attorney

  • Ummm, I would fight it, not just wonder if she will look for him. That is rediculous and if it means anything to him he will get an attorney and fight it. There has got to be more to this story. How long had it been since he saw her? THere is a protocal they follow for step parent adoptions and if your dh was still trying to see her they wouldnt let the other guy have anything to do with adopting her. TELL HIM TO FIGHT!

  • She might not even remember who he is by the time she's old enough to consider looking for him.

    He needs a lawyer.

  • gmasboy is right. That's exactly what I would do. Using a child to get back an an ex (and then taking his rights away and having another man adopt the child without the birth dad's consent) is deplorable behavior that needs to be corrected immediately in the best interest of the child.

    Good luck!

  • If the courts took his rights away, yes the step dad can adopt her. Taking rights away means the courts saw him as unfit and he now has NO RIGHTS to her. My husband was adopted after the courts took his bio parent's rights away. You said the courts took his rights away for lies that the little girl made? How old is this girl? Courts don't just "take rights away"- they need sufficient evidence. If there's NO reason his rights should of been taken and the judge was just an ass- then your husband needs a GOOD attorney. He can't just sit around and hope that one day she comes looking for him. Who knows what kind of lies she will be told throughout these years. She may not want to look for a "dead beat dad".........I am NOT saying that but you can bet that's what the mom and stepdad will say!

  • even if he lost all rights they still would have to post notices about the adoption. Trust me my ex gave his rights away and in order for my husband to adopt her we still had to let our intents known to her real father. This whole story on their part stinks.Yes get a lawyer.
