My son is 8 months old and his biological father has not seen him since he was a month old. I have tried several times to let him be a dad but he always blows my baby off. How do i take away his rights so that once my fiance and i get married he can have custody.

Consult an attorney but you'll have to see if he's willing to sign away his rights that means you can't go after him for support. You'll have to go through the courts and if he's not willing to do that then your fiancé won't be able to adopt your child after you're married.

I agree you need to discuss this with a good family law attorney. You may have grounds for termination of parental rights based on abandonment. These laws are complex and vary state to state. Take your time and do your research carefully. Do you truly want bio-dad out of the picture completely?
