Go to the phone book, find a family lawyer, and call for a free consultation. I don't think we have any lawyers in here, and laws differ by state.

I am so sorry for your daughter. But do you have another child with him?

Being incarcerated does not mean he has to relinquish his parental rights. Granted his crime was disgusting and horrific, but that does not automatically equate to taking away his parental rights. This is definately one for your lawyer!

Laws are different in different places ... most places require a parent to terminate rights before a step parent can adopt ... don't know about someone in this situation .... call an attorney
