    We are finalizing the adoption of my daughter to my husband. We need a form to put in the newspaper to run for 3 weeks. What is the form? It's suppose to let the bio father know. He won't care. He has no rights and hasn't seen her or tried to contact in nine years.

    What do you mean he has no rights? If your referring to "Service via publication" talk to local courthouse as they have specific guidelines for this process and a criteria to meet before using it. Also see this for additional info http://www.parentnook.com/step-parent-adoptions/

    You will need to talk to the court clerk and/or an attorney before doing this so that you do it correctly. The court clerk should know the forms/procedure.
