What should I do

My twins dad has never done a thing for them. I've always pushed the issue. When he would see them it would be because of me. I've grown tired of it. They'll be 4 on Friday and I'm over reminding him he has kids. So I recently asked him would be like to sign his rights over. His exact words were "do what's best for yall." So should I pursue it or just let him go on with his life without this legal action?

I would get his rights terminated if possible. I know in a lot of states they won't terminate unless he's a danger to the children or there is someone who is willing to step up and adopt them though.

 Do you have a husband that would legally adopt them? It may be difficult to do if you don't. They are beautiful little girls.

Are you getting or need child support from him? Do you want to continue forcing him to be a part of your DD's lives. Would they be better off without him in their lives, now and in the future? These are just some of the questions you have to ask yourself and make a decision you feel is best for them. It's not about you or him, it's about them. What is best for them? BTW...they are ADORABLE!!!!

Personally I'd leave it be. If he doesn't want to be part of their lives it's his major loss. Unless u think he would cause problems later in their lives.
Beautiful girls.

My brother in law signed over his rights

He did not have anyone else willing to adopt them and it wasn't difficult. She said she wanted his rights terminated because he wasn't involved and he confirmed that and signed papers. That's it.

I would seek professional legal counsel from a qualified attorney who specializes in family law. Your children are beautiful and this is a very big and important question, one that could have long term ramifications for their lives. It is too important to be discussed in a public internet forum.

I do have a fiancé who loves them to death. He says they're his children. And thanks

I would suggest going ahead with it then.

Just sign up for cs and leave him be. There's no need to terminate his rights.
