If I adopted my husband’s daughter, how do I keep her biological mother from contacting her?

The bio mother was asked to not have any contact or send any mail to the child. Due to abandoning her twice and causing our 7 year old to have counseling and problems in school. The bio mother insists on sending mail under my daughters name knowing she would open it. I would like to stop her from doing this kind of action. What is my best legal option and do I have a legal option to take?

Assuming the biological mother no longer has any parental rights over your adopted daughter and yet continues to have contact with the child to the child's distress, you need to consult with a family law attorney as to filing a petition for a restraining order against the biological mother as soon as possible.
