If the biological father is alive, legally thats where he'd go. That fact aside, that's a pretty shitty person you married. Should had that convo before getting married. what a jerk!
The bio-dad already bailed on the kid once and that's when he had only 50%* obligation. What makes you think he'll step up to give the kid 100% care? *And lots of dads do way less than 50%.
Oh I'm not saying he'll step up. Believe me, my ex is a deadbeat so I get it. However, that doesn't change how the law works. unless he has terminated his rights, or has been deemed unfit, the courts will give him custody in the event the mom passes. Believe me, I don't like it, which is why my ex won't have access to the money I leave to my kids. Without the money as an incentive, he'd be more likely (highly likely) to let my husband keep the kids.
