More Information:

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.

The Pennsylvania law that has the grounds for involuntarily termination of parental rights can be found here: http://law.onecle.com/pennsylvania/domestic-relations/00.025.011.000.html.
