My son is 4 and a half years old. There is a child support against my sons father by the state because he recieves medicaid. His father is not on the birth certificate and has only seen him a few times since my son was born. He is now saying he is going to file for joint custody. Not to souns bitchy, but he has known that he is the father of my son since he was born and has never made much effort to see him. He is known for doing xoke and smoking weed and has 2 other children, one whom he is on child support for but does jot see nor has legal rights and the other whom he does not see or is on child support for. My son does not know who he is and has mo parent child relationship with him. And i do not want him to have joint custody. My son sees my boyfriend, who has been there for him since he was 2, as his father and calls him daddy. Would the fact that my son has no relationship with his biological father and has a parental relationship with my boyfriend make any difference when it comes to his father having rights? My boyfriend wants to legally adopt my son but we are afraid that now that there is a child support case against his father that we will nog be able to go through with it.
