My question involves adoption law for the State of: Tennessee
My daughter is 3 years old and my fiance has been in her life for 2 yrs, she has no idea that's not her biological father. Her biological father is around enough for her to know that he's another dad in her life but that's it, he pays no child support, even tho he's ordered to by law, and he wont even keep her when he makes plans to do so, something always changes. The last time he kept her for the weekend he decided that Sunday isn't considered part of the weekend, but didn't tell me til Sunday morning, and he didn't even take care of her, the people he was staying with did. I know this because she told me what she did all weekend and he wasn't mentioned and the people there also told me about it. he has no visitation/custody rights and is just completely in the way. I just want to legally get him 100% out of her life and my fiance is ready to adopt her. I know were not married but all our money is going into her and our home so we have no money for the wedding and we don't want to get married until we can afford a wedding. I'm not looking for moral thought and answers i just want to know legally everything that has to be done for him to adopt her. Thanks.
