You would have to give the attorney notice of the hearing. It is very easy to mess up an adoption, so much so that most attorneys will not even attempt an adoption case. You really should have an attorney that really knows adoptions to help you and they will be able to deal with notice issues.

If your rights were terminated child support only stops if the child is adopted. Any past due support would still be owed. You should contact an attorney to help you get to the bottom of this so you know where you stand. I wish you the best of luck with this matter.
No. By statute the mother is considered the custodial parent of a child born to parents that were never married. The good news is the father can establish his rights by filing an action in the district court.
Adoptions are so complex that most lawyers will not even attempt to do an adoption. An adult adoption will be easier than a child but I think it would be worth your time to meet with an expert to learn the process and your options.

Now my court appointed lawyer withdrew. And told me I need to file a " entry of appearance". How do I do this, and where do I fie it. And what is it for.? I'm so lost and need help before I loose my parental rights to my son. It was a default judgement I was late for court.
It is not possible to teach you everything that you need to know to handle the case over the internet. You really need to hire an attorney right now and see if they can help you set aside the default. Act quickly!!!

Since Oklahoma law is the fathers name on the birth certificate if you are married is the husband's name, I'm on all 3 of them. I've done 2 denial of paternity already. I'm really confused...

Her second kids father told me that was his daughter now and threaten to beat me up so I just left them alone. Now put of the blue she is requesting child support even though she is engaged to this guy. I don't have any evidence of the other guys message or anything it was from 5 years ago
Visitation has nothing to do with child support. Support is still owed whether or not there has been visitation. You should consult with an attorney and see if a modification of support might help you. I wish you the best of luck.
