Ok I have a question.. I have a 4 year old son when he was 11 months old his dad broke my son's leg he stomped on it. He got 3 years in prison. He got out their he has not contacted my son or anything since he was 11 months old either has his family they don't speak to me. Then I started dating a guy when my son was 1. But I known this guy for 8 years before we dated so it was some body random . We got married last June and I love him so much he took car of my son I didn't ask him to he just did because he wanted to so since he was 1 he helped me. Now my husband wants to adopt my son do you think I can go through the court with out a lawer just wondering and again the dad to the kid is not involed at all. I do have a 5 year restraining order for my son but not me. We are going to try to take rights away and I don't think he should have rights for hurting him.

Given he has served in prison for hurting your son and you have a restraining order, you have enough evidence to have his rights removed, in which case, adoption will be possible. Perhaps get some legal advice (you may not need a lawyer for the whole process) on how to go about it where you live, because every country and state is different.
