Q: New husband filed for adoption. I have legal.
I filed for contempt, next day got a court date from a mutual party that her new husband is trying to adopt.
And your question is?
If you have legal custody but have had no contact with your child for 6 or more months (continuously), then they may be also filing a petition to terminate your parental rights -- and usually this is done in conjunction with a step-parent's petition for adoption.
Best of luck to you. Sounds like you need to sit down with an experienced family law attorney to at least go over everything.
