I have a child whose father has never seen her past the day he signed the paternity paperwork. He's never paid child support or initiated contact, and my other half wants to legally adopt her. Based on my state's law, we have cause for abandonment, but I can't find any way to self file through the court system.
Have you terminated the parental rights of your child's father? Did you use a lawyer, a legal aid society, or did you do it yourself? How long did it take, and was your petition granted?
