    You really cannot do it without an attorney. It's too complex of an issue, legally. You can get legal custody without an attorney, but terminating her parental right and adopting is an entirely different story.

    There is a remote possibility that you could do it without a lawyer if your daughter consents and cooperates.

    Query why you claim you "need to" do this? Why can't you simply obtain a guardianship?
