Need a little help here..... The father of my 2 daughters abused them physically and verbally on his last visit (Oct. 1st, 2006) He now wants to terminate his parental rights. I was told by his attorney that the arrearages would be written off with my consent in order for him to sign off and I would have to marry my daughters acting dad of nearly 3 years in order for them to be adopted.
For the last year I have been stuck between Michigan courts and Ohio courts. I have been trying to get my case moved to Ohio because both the bio dad and I have lived in Ohio for over 2 years. He is trying to keep the enforcement in Michigan because Michigan has done nothing with enforcing child support - - let alone protect my daughters rights.
Do I have to "waive" the arrearages in order to get him to go away?? Isn't this like "selling" them off to him?? He is nearly $17,000.00 behind in child support and has not paid regular support in years.
Would a judge let this happen if he wants the arrearages to part of the deal for him to sign a TPR??
