He'll never lose his rights. If he wanted to , he can always take you to court and get visitation right. The only way he will lose his rights is if he gives up all parental rights in court. Even if he still does this he still has to pay child support no matter what. Don't let him miss a payment. If he misses a payment, report him.

rights can be taken if you file for abandonment. Abandoment will be considered if there is six consecutive months of no contact between the parent and child. I am going through it now so my husben can adobt my daughter.

I was told it was 3 months of no contact in Tenessee. I am also working on getting remarried, and my current fiance adopting my first child. As far as she knows, he is her father. She does not know nor remember ever having another. It's been 3 years since a visit or child dipport check has been seen.

Since losing them can include not paying support, it can only be done if an adoption is the intent.
