    Default Termination of parental rights

    im am in PA, my sons father has not seen him since he was born and has only contacted us 2 times in the past 3 years. i am with someone else and have been with this guy throughout that pregnancy, he is "daddy". we are also expecting this september. we are worried however, that my sons biological dad will come back into the picture in the future. so far, it has passed, he just drops it after one call, we dont hear from him again for another 18 months. my question is, is there anyway i can get his reights terminated? i dont think he would sign them away, but he does nothing and seems to want nothing to do with us! what can i do?

    In most states you can terminate the biological father's parental rights through step-parent adoption.

    any idea, how do i go about doing that? and would we be able to change my sons last name? (there is no father listed on the birth certificate; only me, he has my last name right now)

    There's information, along with an assortment of links, on the subject of Pennsylvania step-parent adoption available here.
