Since my mom died at an early age I worry about something happening to me & I have an almost 5 yr old daughter from my 1st marriage and I have full custody of her. Her dad is court ordered to pay child support but doesnt and only comes to see her about once every 10-12 months so she doesnt even know who he is. My husband now has been her "daddy since she was 2 and he's all she's ever known so it worries me that if something happened to me her bio father would be able to get her and it would be like a complete stranger getting her. Would my husband now be able to keep since I'm remarried and I'm the one who has full custody of her? I'm getting my ex's rights taken away and my husband is going to adopt her and Ive already talked to the lawyer about it and will be able to, I just have to pay $2000 so I wont be able to have that money til probably tax time next year. It's really been bothering me about something happeneding to mw.Answer Question

After the adoption is final there is nothing your ex can do to get custody. A half adoption (that is just a name I use not a legal term) is just as biding as an adoption done at birth when both parents adopt the child. Birth moms don't get the child back if something happens to the adoptive parents. Your ex wouldn't either.

Before adoption her bio dad will get her. After your DH will get her. Unless you both die together. Then the bio dad will still get her. MAKE A WILL OUT PLEASE.
Are you trying to imply that after adoption the bio-dad will get his daughter back if "stepdad" and bio-mom die. If you are, you are worng. After adoption, bio-dad and his family have NO RIGHTS. The children will go to whoever is to get them in the Will or whoever a judge decides. It will not be the bio dad though.
