    You are the legal father, correct? There is nothing you can do to make the mother pay for her past transgressions. Is there a court order for custody/visitation? If so, and you have been granted visitation, she cannot stop you from seeing your child. And, no, she cannot make you terminate your parental rights. The best thing for you to do (as galling as it may seem) is to let by gones be bygones and be thankful that you have a wonderful daughter in your life.

            You need to read it closely and see if it addresses talking negatively to the child about the other parent. (mine does) If it does, file contempt charges against her. If it does not, you need to file to modify the order to include that in it. You are this girl's father, whether or not you are biologically related.

                Child support is a different issue than custody. You can petition for 50/50 custody, but must show a significant change in your daughter's circumstances to warrant the change. If you are granted 50/50 (which is actually not usually exactly 50/50) your support may go down depending on how much time your daughter actually stays with you and your and your exe's incomes that would be used to recompute the amount of child support.

                  I'm trying to find the exact case, but I'll give you the Cliff Notes version until I can find it.

                  Mom and dad were married 9 years had 1 child. Several years after the divorce, dad found out he wasn't dad after all. Although the statute of limitations had run out years earlier, mom decided to try and terminate his rights. The biological father was deceased and could not take any action himself. Judge orders DNA test, legal dad isn't related. Judge orders ANOTHER DNA comparing the child's to the deceased man's mother's DNA. Test is positive.

                  The judge grants mom's motion to terminate the ex's parental rights due to the fact that the child would not suffer financially because mom would receive SS death benefits. Then comes the surprise ending.......



                  The judge gives the "former step-parent" the same visitation schedule that he had as the legal father due to the fact that the child had an established relationship with him and the visitation would not interfere with the biological father's rights!
