    Default Rights Termination in Ohio Without Stepparent Adoption

    Hello,
    My divorce was finalized about a year ago, there are 2 children out of this marriage that I have custody of. For 3 years there has been no contact or suuport from my ex. He does not hold a job or a stable residence and is in and out of prison all the time. I would like to permantly terminate his parental rights, but I have been told by a few people that this is only possible if a) I remarry and new husband adopts the children or b) I grant guardianship to an outside agency.
    I have been searching and feel totally lost because everything seems to lead me to adoption sites or child welfare sites.
    Is it possible that since its only been me providing support for the last 3 years to terminate the fathers rights without remarrying or giving up my own rights???

    Were custody and support addressed in the divorce?

    Yes, I have an open support case, which has never once been paid on, the first time I filed I was ineligable due to him being incarserated, it was refiled again when I was going through the divorce and was ordered for him to pay $312/ month, which is now unpaid for about 15 months.
    As far as the visitation, he was granted none until he went to a parenting class, because he never showed up for the mediation or any of the hearings.
    So can I change this from no visitation with rights still to permanent termination of rights and visitation?
