he abandoned us, didn't hear from him for years, now he's in prison and wants contact?!
My ex husband, abondoned me and our son 3 years ago, took off with our only vehicle and all our money. We were completely screwed and I'm really lucky my family stepped in and helped us. We've moved past it and moved on, I'm now engaged and pregnant with my second child, I'm happy, my first son is happy and calls my fiance 'dad'. We are doing very well without his bf in the picture...
Well, my ex ended up getting hooked on heroin and committed a series of break ins and ended up getting caught, he's now doing 4 years in prison. He contacted us through his brother, he would like to fix our relationship and get back together, and he would like me to start bringing our son in for visitations..
-Hell NO I am not getting back together with him, and I made that very clear
-The prison is a 6 hour drive from where I live, and when I asked my son (who is now 5 years old) if he wanted to visit, he started crying and said he was scared of jail
I personally DO NOT want to see my ex, and I really don't want my son to either. I would rather wait until he gets out of prison, and show me he can be responsible and be sober and hold a job before he can see our son.
He's calling me a bad parent for keeping our son from seeing him, and he's telling me that my son will hate me later in life for not allowing him to have contact. Am I in the wrong here? Should I allow visitation just because its the biological father?
