  • How can my fiance adopt my 16 month old in Missouri Missouri

    My daughter is 16 months old. her biological father and i dated for awhile and i ended up pregnant. he did sign the birth certificate. we broke up when i was 4 months pregnant. i spoke to him only a couple times, then he went to jail for 120 days for violations of probation and having 3 DWI's. He has saw her 2 times, once when she was about a week old and again at about 3 weeks. I have received no money from him. a CS order was placed 3 months ago, because she has medicaid and they had to go after him for it. he has not payed any of it, and switched jobs twice already because of the income withholding papers. i do not know where he is living or working. he has had no contact i met my fiance when she was 3 months old, we are now engaged and wil be getting married in september. thats her daddy, hes all shes ever known. he has always wanted to adopt her, how do we go about him adopting her?? how long do we have to be married? does he have to voluntarily sign over rights? he has had no contact with us since she was about 6 months old when he called me and told me he wanted a paternity test, i told him no. any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

    First, you get married.

    Then, you stay married at least a year.

    Then, you get the bio dad to sign his rights over.
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

        Which is his right. He doesn't HAVE to voluntarily TPR just because that is what you want and some other man wants to be Daddy.

        In that case, expect a very long, and most likely unsuccessful court battle.

            I will further point out that Tx has very different laws and guidelines for tpr than most other states. For instance, marriage to a person ready, willing and able to adopt is not legally required.
