My question involves adoption law for the State of: Texas
Same story. Dad and I dated. Daughter was born. He denied her. Then claimed her. He did not come to her birth and consequently is not on the birth certificate. There was to be a custody/support hearing and he never showed. He has not seen her since February of 2010 and has not even attempted to call since August of 2010. Now I am settled and my fiancee and I are trying to get our family together as it should be. (Wouldnt it be awesome if he could sign adoption papers at the wedding?) So my questions are: Do I even have to try to fight this with him since he is not on the BC and there is no legal id of him as the father? ANd if I still have too what are my chances? And what do I need to do?
