Thank you for you response. She is 7 years old and lives with her mother in England and has been since 2010. I have maybe seen my daughter 5 times since then and have not seen her in two years and have had no contact. I live in Africa and do not have the funds to get on a plane and go and see her and her mother refuses to send her out to me and my new family for holidays and such. My estranged wife has now made a maintenance claim against me and the amount that she is demanding I simply cannot afford. My estranged wife according resources is getting remarried and I want to relinquish my parental rights to my estranged wife in order to give her new husband the opportunity to adopt my daughter and create a family life that she will never have with me or my new family.
In short I want to do what is right and give my daughter the best opportunity of moving on with her life and not have her parents fighting all the time. As we have been since our divorce. It will also not be fair on my daughter to fight my estranged wife for custody as it can leave irreparable psychological damage on my daughter. Her mother has also been telling untruths and my daughter according through family members have built up a resilience against me and my new family through what she has heard from her mother and friends.
Please I just want to do what is right with the slightest damage.
No not currently but she has indicated in the past that her previous partners wanted to.
