He went to prison in 2006 which is when my daughter was born so he's not on her birth certificate, but he's on my sons. He came out of prison saw the kids when I paid for him to visit but when I stopped he stopped seeing them. Home office were trying to deport him so I don't even know if he's in the country we've had no contact since the end of 2008. I did get my sons surname changed to mine via deed poll. Can anyone help at all?

based on the amount of time he has been gone from the kids lives I think there is a way to get the court to terminate his rights based on abandonment and then your partner will be able to adopt if that is what he wants.
