I am the step mom to two kids 5 and 6 and their mother has not seen them in over a year.She has not even made an attempt to see them nor has she contacted the court to make a visitation schedule. There has been no child support and my husband has had custody of them both for almost two years now and one of them for almost three. She talks to them around every four months or so. A birthday or holiday will roll around or something. She was actually two weeks late for calling on one of the birthdays and the other she called an hour and a half after their bedtime. We want to ile for termination of parental rights but we don't have any money and I have been told it's hard to do it alone. Juvenile court said she isn't doing anything wrong so we can't go through them and we will have to go through civil court. She needs to legally be unable to hurt these children any longer and I need to be able to legally be their mom so they can be taken care of wothout having the whole not the mom thing coming up all the time.Does anybody know the easiest way to go through this stuff with the least amount of money, since we have none? I live in tennessee if that helps.
