    Has he been paying child support?
    When was the last time he talked to her?

    What you are going to have to do if he will not voluntarily agree is file in court to terminate his parental rights. Keep in mind that if he has been paying child support, that is considered contact and you will have to convince the judge that it is not MEANINGFUL contact and that he has abandoned and shown extreme disintrest in the child. It is not easy or inexpensive. That's your only option. Your husband cannot adopt without the father's consent, whether that be voluntarily or if his rights are legally terminated by a court.

      Then you have a better chance of convincing the court that he has abandoned her. If he is not willing to agree to the adoption, you have to take him to court. If this is what you want to do, get an atty.

      Have you told him that he will not have to pay support in the future if he allows her to be adopted? He will still be responsible for the arrearages, but you can "forgive" them. If you haven't broached that topic with him, it may be a very good bargaining chip.
