My son is almost 8 years old. His biological father never wanted him. He never showed up to his birth (lied and told his family that I told him not to come.) Despite this I let him be in my son's life. That's proven to be a mistake. He uses my son as a weapon against me. He's only been to his 1st and 2nd birthday. He would say he would pick him up and either showed late or more often he didn't show at all. He took me to court for visitation (which makes no sense) and then dropped the case. He currently pays $126.00 month for child support after catching up to arrears payments. He is now married, has had more kids and willfully ignores our son. Worse, he is applauded by his friends and family as a good father. Neither he not his family contacts my son. I refuse to force or beg him to take part in our son's life. I can't believe he's getting away with this. $126.00 won't take care of a kid and my son always cries and now says he "hates" his dad. What do I say to that?
