Please I need some help also, ok here's what's going on, when my daughter was 4 years old I had been moving so I didn't see her for 1 month, when I called to see her, her father told me I could not see/take her. (Ok at this time I was using drugs) so I of course got scared when he said this that if I tried to fight with him about i t I would go to jail,(yes I know I was wrong for everything I did) but because I was on drugs I thought she would be better off with her dad, so now is 10 years later and I just started talking with my daughter again so I found out he is doing some pretty bad things Now(drug, getting arrested for drinking and driving and more) ok so my question is, do I still have parents rights to my daughter after not seeing/talking to her for 10 years? If anyone knows this question please write me back please(and yes I am clean now and have been for almost 4 years now) please I very worried about where he's been leaving my daughter, I'm very scared for her well-being so if you know this answer please let me know as soon as possible, oh and this would be California USA laws. Thank you, please help.
