Salt Lake City, UT asked in Family Law for Utah

Q: How good of a chance did i have of terminating my ex wifes parental rights?

My ex gave up rights to visitation. Gave me sole legal and physical custody. She doesnt have to pay support. Wife and i just paid a lawyer to terminate my ex wifes rights based on abandonment and file for adoption. She has not talk to or seen our daughter for over 6 and a half years.

What would you charge to take her case? I know she wants to fight back. Trying to get a feel for how well she could fight back

A: You state in your question that you have paid a lawyer to terminate your ex-wife's parental rights, which I assume is in the context of your current wife seeking to adopt your child. You must consult with you existing attorney, or specifically consult another attorney for a second opinion after reviewing all the facts of your situation.
