How many months is considered abandoment of a child? My daughter stopped seeing her father in may 2012 and he made no attempt to contact me to see her even when i saw him in public and then I recieved a letter from his attorny on nov 30 requesting I do a mediation. Is him being absent from her life for 6.5 months and making no effort to be in her life grounds for a judge to no give him rights? Also he wants to jump into over nights when she has not stayed with him or any of his family for over 1.5 years and only his mom has contacted be about seeing her since may 2011 nothing from him
she is only 3.5 and very much attached to me and shows no interest in her father at all, she is reminded of him daily as she has a picture of her with him in her room. Will they likely take that into consideration? as well as how long it took him to even establish rights when she was born? he was absent the whole pregnancy and did not establish rights till she was 4 mo old
