I am NOT an expert on this, but I thought you had to have his permission to remove his parental status? I don't think the court will order an adoption against his wishes - he will have to agree to it.

He should of course be paying chid support. Have you asked him to? Have you contacted the CSA?

I may be wrong, and I hope someone comes along soon to give you better informed advice.

If you put step-parent adoptions into google there is loads of info. I just clicked on the first one that came up and didn't read it all but seemed a lot of very helpful information and issues that need to be considered etc.
