by Mariah
(Weston , Fl)

My daughter is now 12 yrs old she hasn't seen her biological father since 2007 . There is a court order for child support which he rarely pays. A warrant was just issued for his arrest for non-payment how do I have his parental rights terminated

Other than what you mentioned above, are there any other reasons to terminate parental rights? The state of Florida is very reluctant to orphan children. In essence, by asking the court to remove parental rights is the same as asking them to orphan the child. If you are looking to possibly have a stepparent adoption than maybe you can ask the biological father to surrender his rights.

Please keep in mind I'm not an Atty. And anything I say is based on personal experience or knowledge.
