What exactly does "regularly and substantially failed or neglected" mean? We would like to get bio mom's rights terminated and have me adopt the kids (3.5, 4.5, 5.5). If my husband has sole custody and CO says we take the kids across the country for supervised visits with biomom, which we do, but she chooses not to come to the kids for her week, would that count? She has the contact/visits that one time, but only because we do what we are supposed to do. She's also calling about every two to three weeks, except for the next 2 months because she's in jail. No support is ordered due to the cost of her coming across the country to see the kids-- which she's not doing. She's supposed to also pay half of the uninsured medical expenses- luckily we've only had $100 worth which we paid and sent her a receipt, but she refused to pay half. She has also claimed 2 of the 3 kids on her state assistance/food stamps and got caught with welfare fraud (no jail time) and has used the 5.5 year old's social security number to open accounts which she left unpaid. Since she's on the birth certificate she can get the new soc # if we got them changed so that's pointless unless I adopt them. Is that sort of stuff grounds for termination?
