    Default Can My Son's Bio Dad Get His Rights Back

    My question involves adoption law for the State of: Texas and California. About 10 years ago, my son's bio dad gave up his rights so that my at the time husband could adopt him. About 2 years later we were divorced and adopted father has ceased contact. Is there anyway to return parental rights to the bio dad who is now off drugs and has his life together and wants to be a part of his child's life?

    No.

    Bio dad no longer has a child.

    Your son has two parents - you and the guy who adopted him. You're free to allow as much contact as you want, but other than that he has no more rights to the child than I.

    (There is actually a way. You marry Biodad and hope that LegalDad will terminate his rights in order for Biodad to adopt the child)

    (Or, you AND LegalDad terminate your rights so Biodad can adopt as a single parent)
