My question involves adoption law for the State of: Georgia
My daughter's Bio father offered to terminate his rights but then backed out... is there any case that says that the judge can enforce him to go through with the settlement offer even if he did not sign the termination papers?
Another question I have is ... if not how long does he have to be absent to have his rights terminated? He has nothing to do with my daughter and only shows up every blue moon.. it has not been a full year but has been 7 months.. She does not know who he is and every time he does show up she gets confused and she continuously asks who he is... this is not helping her have stability in her life and will effect her emotionally (more than it does now) once she gets older.
and WHY on earth does the court systems think that because someone paying child support (not even voluntarily but has it taken out of his check-state ordered) that they are having something to do with that child??
