I am wondering if my 8 year old daughter's biological Father would be able to reverse a step parent adoption that took place 5 years ago.
Basically the bio father abandoned her at age 2, when I got married in 05 and consented to my husband adopting her. My husband and I were divorced in 07 because he was abusive to me. So he has been out of the picture and hasn't seen my daughter in over 3 years. Now the Biological father wants to take me to court to have the adoption reversed, but I don't want to agree to it, I don't think it would be best for her. He has an anger problem as well and I would be afraid to let him have her in his custody. Neither one of the men have seen her in several years.
Can he reverse this adoption since the adoptive father has been out of the picture for so long? Would the courts need my consent to reverse the adoption?
