I’ve been looking through the forum and couldn’t find specifics on filing for Termination of parental rights. I’m trying to do it myself and everything I’m finding is about GALs on the case.
When I serve the father is he forced to respond within 30 days or else I can enter a default against him?
Is it necessary to put “In the Matter of A.B.C.” (child’s initials) in my initial petition with the court? It seems there’s not much about the father in the sample petition’s available through the GAL trainings, which are really the only resources I’ve found.
Thanks for all your help!
