What is the name of your state? NC
I know there was a similar thread for another person in NC, but in my case, the bio father is/was not known to begin with. What would I need to do to "terminate" the rights of someone unknown? I know publishing something in the newspaper will be involved, but for how long and what do I say? And do I publish it before I file the paperwork for hubby to adopt my child, or at the same time, and do I need to petition the court to terminate those "rights" before he can file for adoption? I already have the adoption paperwork that I picked up from the special proceedings office, but she would not tell me what to do, said to get a lawyer and that was it. I don't have $850 to shell out, just to have a lawyer publish something instead of me. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone has to give me =)What is the name of your state?
