Has anyone successfully had your ex sign away his rights and have a judge approve it?

My ex signed the paper, now I am just waiting for the hearing. I can't help but be nervous. My daughter will have to see my ex at the hearing. She is 3.5 and hasn't seen him since right before her 1st bday. I met him to get him to sign the paper. He looked SO scruffy. Like he was homeless or something. He stunck of cigarettes so bad. I think she is gonna be scared of him. I really hope it goes well.

Was hoping to hear some success stories.

I never needed a hearing. We arranged all the stipulations in an agreement and he signed it.took it to my lawyer and she sent it to the judge. Boom...done! Good luck!

Are you remarried and is the child being adopted? If not then how is it in the kids best interest to leave her legally fatherless? Normally the courts will not do this unless extreme cases of abuse. Once rights are terminated, the tax payers may get stuck supporting the kid then the state has no recourse. Normally this does not happen. If the father does not have any visits why not leave it at that? If you are married and the kid is being adopted then the courts will normally approve.

I am remarried. So it is a step parent adoption. Its felt like a long time waiting. In my state you have to be married a year before you can file for it.

Once the adoption goes thru I won't have any claim to the single mom title. Seems weird.

My ex has rights but he chooses not to see his girls.  He's become one big recluse and alienating himself from everyone.  Maybe it's for the best... things got really rough for us.  But, that's another story...

Well if the little one is being adopted then that is great! Good luck.

I don't know anyone who voluntarily waived his rights, but I know a couple who had them terminated and it took a lot of evidence and time to get that to happen.

The attorney said it would be best. I want to do every thing I can to make sure this goes thru.
