I have a son from a previous relationship. I had him with another man while seperated (not legally) from my ex-husband. My exhusband knows my son is not his, and has given up rights in our divorce agreement. He will not be involved in helping me with anymore legal matters. I have remarried. My husband now would like to adopt my son. The bio dad has not been in the picture for any of his life. He is a criminal, a drug addict, and on the run. He has not made any attempts to be in my sons life since he was born 3 years ago. I would not ask for child support back pay. My son has his bio dads last name. Bio dad is NOT on birth certificate, just me. I know he will not give up easily, but i know he will be ruled incompetent.
SO...WHAT CAN I DO?? HOW CAN WE GET HIM ADOPTED AND/OR CHANGE HIS LAST NAME TO OURS? I want us all to be a family... :(
