My DD is 2 and bio has been involved very little. He was physically around until she was 9 months just because he had no place to move to when my father kicked him out he was gone from her life for 3 or 4 months then he'd take her 2 or 3 hours a week and i supplied everything and she always returned soaked hungry and smelling like smoke. I met someone new at that time. Her bio then disappeared right after Christmas no calls no visits and I didn't pursue after a few returned messages. I married in June. He was gone until November then his new girl friend messaged me on myspace and said he was in a serious accident. So i took her to the hospital he almost died and has changed wants to start fresh blah blah blah. As soon as he was better he started partying and not showing up again. but he managed to string out his disappearance until April from hit and miss visits. Now gone again. over the past 2 yrs he's been arrested 5+ times

One option is to see if you can have your DH adopt her by proving abandonment on BD's part, some states only require 6 months of no contact to prove abandonment. You cannot terminate BD's rights without another father-figure to assume those responsibiilties. Otherwise, the only thing you can do is go to court file for primary physical custody, sole legal custody, & limit BD's visitation & try to get it to be supervised only. You cannot get a Bio Parent out of the picture without a Step Parent adoption. This is to the best of my knowledge, hope it helps, also get a lawyer experienced in dealing with this. GL!
