Depends on which state they live in. In three states, California, Idaho and Utah it would depend on dependency and age. IN all others NO. In most states the immediate family members are the only parties who can file a wrongful death suit. That includes parents, children, and adopted children. Some states have extended the right to grandparents, step parents and step children and courts can authorize other parties such as creditors and beneficiaries. You need to consult with an attorney in your state who can review your situation and explain your rights and options under your state laws.

Could a stepfather get custody of your 2 girls if something should happen to you you have full custody and their biological father has a criminal history?

In order for the stepfather to gain custody in the event of the mother's death, there would first have to be a number of circumstances. If the father is no longer in jail, has a job, home, and a means to provide the children a safe, stable environment, he would likely be the one to get custody. Having a criminal history doesn't necessarily make a parent unfit. But if he were to sign consent for the stepfather to adopt the children, then the stepfather would get custody.But if the stepfather has not adopted the children, there is also the fact of grandparents, aunts and uncles, in addition to the father, who would possibly try to get custody if the stepfather has not already adopted the children.The best thing to do would be to talk to an attorney and find out what your options are. You should also talk to your family and let them know your wishes should something happen to you.
