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???
