This is a delicate matter and my question is how making this legal is going to make it any different for your daughter to move on? Whatever the father's reasons (psychological, emotional...) wouldn't your daughter perhaps want to have a choice should he decide to come back into her life? It is a very difficult dilemma and I understand that you want to protect you daughter from further hurt but writing a parent off on paper is not as easy as writing a parent off from a child's life. No matter what, he will always be her father.
I would suggest to get your daughter some counselling to be better equipped to deal with her situation.
