I'm a single mom, My now three year old son hasn't seen his father in a year, and I want to change his last name to my maiden/current last name. When my son was born i thought his father was going to step up and be a parent, so i gave him his fathers last name but i did not put the fathers name on the birth certificate.
I also would like to get legal sole custody of my son, his 'father' has never paid child support (i have never filed for it either), or kept him over night. As it stands he cannot even pick my son up from school. Every now and again he will rear his ugly head and give me a call threatening to take me to court in order to see my son, but it never goes any further than threats. I want to end this, making it official that he has absolutely no rights without putting my son through a ridiculous custody battle. I'm worried that if i take this to court it may blow up in my fave, a judge may grant his father visitations which would be more than he is doing now. Where do i start? thanks in advance.
