I don't know about other states, but 6 months with no contact with the child constitutes abandonment in PA. That's how my Mom and Dad were able to have Dad adopt us. I believe there are timeframes set in other states for abandonment. For my Sister, it was 2 years (Illinois). Basically, he has abdicated all paternal rights by this time.
