Hi- my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist. You and your husband can file a petition for adoption and to terminate the father's parental rights, and the father can sign a joinder, waiver and entry of appearance agreeing to the termination of his rights and consent to adoption....and he likely won't have to go to court.....but you and our husband will.
