My son will be 6 soon. His biological father hasn't seen him since he was 2 months old, I barely talk to him, he pays $200 every two weeks. So in a sense he is involved, but only financially.
The man my son calls dad has been there since I was 5 months pregnant, he was there the day I was rushed in for a emergency c-section, for his first birthday, his baptism, EVERYTHING. We have been together since before he was born.
Do I have to tell him about his biological father? To what extent does he need to know? He says he wants to see him, but has been saying such for almost 2 years.

I'm in a similar situation,but my son's sperm doner has no involvement with my child period.He hasn't seen him since he was 3 months old (only about 5/6 times maybe).I get no money from him and never have.My son has asked me why,the person that he has always called dad,was not there in the beginning.Mainly if he looks at his baby book and sees the pictures that say "new daddy" on them.I've always told him that he wasn't there before.He's never asked to see his "sperm doner" before.On occasion,when my son gets mad at his dad,he will tell me he wants me to get a new daddy.I don't know how I will tell him when he asks me or my husband (the only person that my son has ever known as dad for his whole life.18 months old at least) where his real dad is.I know that I'll help him find him if that's what he wants to do.I just don't want my child to get hurt in any way.I'm not sure on what to do though.I'm not there yet.Good luck.
