My sons birth mother Hasn't seen her son since she gave birth. Hasn't even called him. Hasn't paid any child support. Hasn't done a single thing for him in 5 years and now she thinks she can just come into his life like she never even left. Not on my watch. I don't care if I'm his step mom. I will do what's best for MY son. Am I wrong?

You guys need a lawyer unless you already had her rights terminated.

That's not really up to you to decide. No offense, but if you're not his legal guardian or if you never adopted him you don't have a right to keep his Mom away. Your husband has to go to court and they have to decide whether or not to allow her to be in the kids life.

It all depends. Morally? No.
Legally? Possibly.

I don't think you are, I would suggest hiring an attorney before things get ugly though.

I totally understand your point of view.   My advice is for your DH and you to have a discussion with the bio mom.  You need to find out if she wants to be a permanent part of his life or is just passing through.  How is she mentally, physically, etc..?  What are her expectations?   I wouild make this meeting as nice as possible.   If she hasn't terminated her rights, then she has every right to see him.    Also, I do think before the meeting, you should speak with a family law attorney.  Good luck.

It's up to the courts, not you.
