hi..scotland..unmarried parents both on birth cert. separated 6yrs ago when child 2yrs old and agreed child live with mother. no legal agreement. mother now married and has 2nd child..both children live with her. approx £300 maintenance paid in 6yrs. Father gets child when requested..though often doesnt turn up. and child doesnt want overnights. what is likelihood that court would allow step father to adopt and what would be taken into consideration.
diaries kept for 6 yrs and approx visitation would be 40 times/year ranging from 2 hrs to 10 hrs max
