I need as much advice as I can possibly get. My ex husband has been out if our sons life since he was 7 months old, hes now 3! I have been with my current partner since my son was 9 months old therefore he calls him daddy. I recently went to my solicitor to find out about changing his last name to my current partners but as soon as my ex was asked for approval he decided to try and get access to my boy. He is clearly doing it to spite me and I'm terrified he will win. he was violent to me and he will completely mess up my sons head! He has another son who is now 10. He hasn't seen him since he was 4! He will never change, he was violent to exes also. Hes currently out of work so he can get legal aid. When he was working and found out he had to pay so much court fees he wasn't interested. Yet he spends all his money on cars, bikes etc. He blatantly isn't bothered about his kids but with courts these days what are the chances of him gaining access? Is there anything i can do to make sure he stays out of his life?
