My son's father is illegal. I have NO way to find him, and he left me and my son about 2 1/2 years ago. I have done EVERYTHING for my child, he has never helped, and for the last almost 3 years he hasnt been in my son's life physically OR financially. So here is my problem> I called the family court system and asked how can I change my son's last name to mine. The woman I spoke to said even though he hasnt seen my son for a while, he still has "parental rights". I almost thru myself off a cliff when I heard that one, lol, and she also said that he would have to either consent to it, or sign off his rights as my son's father. ARE THEY SERIOUS? First off, he is ILLEGAL, and I cannot find him. SECOND OFF, RIGHTS?? He has NOT done ONE thing for my child. Can anyone PLEASSSE give me some insite on how I can make this happen? That scum does not deserve to have his name after MY child's name. Isnt there some way that they can overlook it because he is nowere to be found, and I know I will never have contact with him again. Thanks for reading!! And please HELP if you CAN!!!!
