Voluntary Surrender of parental rights?? Anyone gone throught this with ex?

My daughter's father hasnt been around for 5 years and she doesnt know him. She calls my DH daddy. She has a relationship with her grandparents(bio-father parents) but not with her bio-father. He wants to surrender his rights and let my DH adopt her. Has anyone gone through this and what all do you have to do to do it? We really dont have the money for an attorney.

  • Laws in every state are different. I'd be uncomfortable doing this without an attorney. Why don't you see if you can get a free consultation. Even if the lawyer doesn't handle it for you, he may be able to tell you what you need to do.

  • I envy you too. Check with your county's probate court, they can't give you legal advice but can give you very basic information.
