JORGE MORENO has been named as the father of JORGE SAMUEL MORENO, a minor child. NOE VILLA has been named as the father of JOSUE DANIEL VILLA and NOE MANUEL VILLA, minor children. The Application alleges that your consents are not required by law for the following reasons, to-wit:

It is alleged that these children are eligible for adoption in that both of you, JORGE MORENO and NOE VILLA, have not supported these children financially since their births; that JORGE MORENO does not visit his son and has had no contact with his son since the child was three months old; that NOE VILLA occasionally visits with his sons when he is not incarcerated; that for all intents and purposes, each of you have totally abandoned his duties and responsibilities as parents toward your sons.

YOU ARE THEREFORE NOTIFIED THAT THE COURT WILL HEAR EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF, AND IN OPPOSITION TO, THE GRANTING OF THE APPLICATION AT THE TIME AND PLACE SHOWN BELOW WHERE YOU WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE PRESENT AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD AT THAT TIME AND PLACE, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE ADOPTION OF YOUR CHILDREN. YOUR FAILURE TO APPEAR AT THIS HEARING SHALL CONSTITUTE A DENIAL OF YOUR INTEREST IN YOUR CHILDREN, WHICH DENIAL MAY RESULT, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE TO YOU, IN THE CHILDREN’S ADOPTION BY THEIR STEP-FATHER WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT, THEREBY ULTIMATELY TERMINATING YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR SONS, ALL IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA.

You are further notified that this court will hear evidence and hold the hearing on the 8th day of May, 2007 at 9:00 o’clock A.M. in the office of the undersigned Judge at the District Court, on the 23nd floor of the Rogers County Courthouse, 219 South Missouri Street, in the City of Claremore, County of Rogers, State of Oklahoma.
