You can file a response and a counter-petition requesting an annulment. Impotence is probably a good ground on which to base a request for an annulment. However, strict statute of limitations typically apply in annulments. Consult with a lawyer.

You can certainly take this matter to court and ask for sole custody. Terminating his rights against his wishes will be very difficult and typically not done unless a person goes to prison or they are extremely dangerous.

Q: The police officer who arrested me was later found to be corrupt. Can I get this case overturned.
Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on Jan 11, 2022

It depends what happened on your case. If there is any evidence of corruption that led to a jury finding you guilty there is a chance you can file a motion to have it overturned. If you voluntarily pled guilty it would be more difficult for you to now get out of that plea.
