As I've said several times on here in my posts, my ex left not long after we found out I was pregnant. He would message me on Facebook, Myspace, Yahoo messenger, and even my cell phone, saying that he wanted to be involved and for me to let him know when doctor's appointments were and this and that and something else, and every time, he had something else to do. I've seen him twice in the 17 months my son has been in this world, neither time was pleasant :( But my main question is, someone was telling me the other day that if the "non custodial" parent goes a certain length of time without contacting the other about the baby, that they've sort of "willingly" given up their rights? Is that correct? I know that if i persued this, I wouldn't get any child support, but in reality, it wouldn't be any different than it is now, I just wouldn't have to worry so much about everyone's whereabouts.
