TO: MIGUEL LUIS ANDRES NUNEZ CHAVEZ, non-consenting father/alleged father. AND TO: Any person claiming a paternal interest in the above-named child. You have been named as the father or a possible father of the above-named child. A Petition for Termination of Parent-Child Relationship has been filed in the above-entitled court. The Petitioners are asking the court for an order permanently terminating the parent-child relationship between you and the child, permanently terminating all of your rights to the child, and for a Decree of Adoption declaring the Petitioners to be the legal parents of the child. BORN CHILD. The child was born on May 28, 2007 at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center in the city of Longview, State of Washington. The name of the child's mother was BRITTANY LEANN WYNN at the time the child was conceived. In order to defend against this petition, you must respond to the petition by stating your defense in writing and by serving a copy upon the Petitioners at the address below within 30 days after the date of first publication of this summons and notice, or an order permanently terminating your parent-child relationship with the child by default will be entered. A default order is one where the Petitioners are entitled to what they ask for because you have not responded. If you serve a notice of appearance on the Petitioners at the address below, you are entitled to notice before a default order may be entered. One method of serving your response is to send it by certified mail with return receipt requested. If service is made by mail, the service shall be deemed complete upon the third day following the day upon which the response is placed in the mail, unless the third day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, in which event service shall be deemed complete on the first day other than a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday following the third day.

Your failure to file a claim of paternity under Chapter 26.26 of the Revised Code of Washington or to respond to the petition for termination of parent-child relationship which has been filed herein within 30 days of the first publication of this summons and notice is grounds to terminate your parent-child relationship with respect to the child.
