I was living with my sons dad when I got pregnant but we were not married. I assume the commitment of being a dad pushed him away so I was pretty much alone at the end of the pregnancy and m sn was born when his dad chose to be on ignore mode. So my lo has my last name. We receive child support but I never requested custody as I knew his dad was not too involved his entire family visit and call nd text so they all know we have an open door policy.
as my son grows, my fear is that there is not formal agreement, one day his dad may start affecting him if he shows up once or twice per year.
he got married now and I assume his wife wants zero involvement.
i do not date so I am not concerned about people at this point but I am just trying to gather input from others.
do I need to file for custody so that bio dad makes a decision about involvement? He may choose zero participation. He may choose visitation.
what are your thoughts?
at this point bio dad is angry because I do to want to hear from him if he only texts me or emails me about sex
