My son whom turns 3 this week keeps asking if Daddy's coming? He isn't. More than likely he will never see his Daddy again. How or what do I say to him to get him to stop asking?

I'm sorry to be so blunt, but this could take a very long time. If his dad does in fact stop coming around he will ask less and less often. He may eventually not ask anymore, but I would acknowledge his feelings by saying something like "I know you miss daddy, but he won't be able to see you for a long time" and then try to distract him due to his age.

My son is 17 and it isn't unusual for his father not to have contact with him for 3 months. You can't just assume that his father isn't ever going to see him again based on three months of no contact. Therefore, you should just tell your son that daddy is busy right now and will contact him when he can. Leave it at that.

His Dad hasnt called him in the past 3 months. He hasn't responded to any texts or calls that I have had in regards to his school. His birthday is in 3 days and he hasn't mentioned anything.
