My question involves adoption law for the State of: Tennessee
I was in a committed relationship and we became pregnant. Since finding out, the father and I have gone our separate ways. I'm 30 and a single mother of two and want to consider adoption. The father does not. To be honest, he lacks the basic skills to make him a good parent. He has severe PTSD from Iraq and has even been violent. My child deserves so much more. I do not believe he possesses the mental stability to raise a child and do not think he will even be around very long after the baby is born. He has already shown no interest but wants to contest because he is that controlling.
Do I have a chance to do this without his consent?
