What is the name of your state? Virginia (active-duty Military family)
My husband recently agreed to terminate parental rights and allow his ex-wife's current husband to adopt his daughter. I know that sounds crazy for a father to do that, but please be open minded to this situation. His ex-wife would constantly change her email/phone number and never allow my husband to have any contact with his daughter. He wanted to take her to court but we had no money to retain an attorney, but made to much money for any kind of legal aid...go figure. After three years of having little to no contact with his duaghter, he was petitioned to terminate rights and release for adoption. He felt it would be in the best interest of his daughter to not fight the petition.
The order to terminate parental rights and for adoption was finalized April 7th in court. My question is...since the Military automaticly deducts the support from his check, what appropriate paperwork will be needed to terminate child support. The signed court order for adoption was faxed to DFAS and we have yet to hear that the payments have been stopped. The court order clearly states that my husband's rights as a father have been terminated, and that the child's surname be changed to the adoptive father's...and so on. It doesn't specificly state that child support from the biological father is to stop but I am assuming that it is implied since the child has been legally adopted.
Thanks for taking the time to read this...and if anyone has any suggestions/comments to simplify this proccess I would greatly appreciate this.
