So I'll start with the background story... The father of my son and I have never been married, he was verbally abusive and had a lot of emotional and personality issues, and had quite the temper. After my son was born we stayed together for about 5 months and then I left him.. for another 6 months he would see my son once a week or once every 2 weeks for a few hours. We never set up child support or took anything to the court. He never paid a dime to me and I was always the one supporting my son. When my son turned one I relocated out of state to be with my family and since i moved I have not heard from him, he hasnt tried taking me to court or anything, that was one year ago. So to sum it up, my sons father and I were never married, nothing was ever established in the courts and I moved and haven't heard anything from him in a year. My son has his last name, and as sad as it is i wish he he didn't. I'm getting married in 2 weeks and my fiance has truly taken the role of being my son's father. He love and supports him and cares for him as his own, and my son loves him more than anything. Should I still ever worry about his biological father ever coming around? When could my soon to be fiance adopt my son? Would we have to contact his biological father, even though I have no way of contacting him and have no idea where he lives now?
