Can I ask for a termination of parental rights?

More details:

I would like to request a termination of parental rights for my ex-husband. He has never once taken care of the child since the day the child was born. I was literally a single mother "with a husband." According to him, he cannot stand his child & doesn't want to be anywhere near him. The child wants nothing to do with the father & also doesn't want to be anywhere near him. Can I ask for a termination of rights? Thank you.
