Can you force a child's bioparent to give up parental rights?
My DH and I desperately want to make our family official in the eyes of the court. We're working on getting him legal gaurdianship, but would much rather he be adopted. Biodad has seen him once since he was born, is combative and verbally abusive to me, used me and cheated on me. I want him to have no part of my son's life, he is no kind of father to his daughter from a previous relationship and now has a new baby on the way with the girl he cheated on me with. Can we have the courts force him to give up his rights?
