  • Doesn't sound like he has a good reason to do this, I would hope that since he hasn't been a part of his life in 5 years that the court will take that in consideration, Unless he says he was unable to be a part of his life due to your moving so often...I hope that you always kept him up to date on contact information and such...Good Luck!

  • yes i did i even went through child support recovery on the issue and sent letters to him beggin to call his son and he never did . he always knew my contact info he has another son he does the same way also and he hasnt seen him in 2 and half yrs . he once told me on the phone that i couldnt make him be a daddy and know he goes and pulls this .

  • Well in that case he really has no grounds!!! You did everything that you were supposed to do, and I do not believe that you have anything to worry about, but again, Good Luck!

  • The only problem I see could happen is... your son is at the legal age to choose who he wants to live with.
    Is it remotely possible that your child has told him these things? I never said my Mom or Dad abused me or neglected me, but I did move back and forth if I didn't like the rules or if I got in trouble at one of their houses (I switched only a few times in reality but I'm sure now it tore my Mom's heart out the times I left).
    Talk to your son, and of course your lawyer, but if your son is wanting to stay with you, it's very likely he will remain there.
