My son's biological dad, who only met my son once when he was 2 might be looking to try to make contact again or come back into the picture. I am not sure what I can do to prevent this from happening. He is not on his birth cert. nor has he ever filed for paternity. My fiancé has been planning on adopting my son after we get married and we have already checked to make sure that he can and since the bio never registered any where nor filed for paternity my fiance can. Any ideas on how to make sure the man my son calls Dad can adopt him?

It is a worry that I have. I don't have contact with him and haven't since last year. Just am getting close to the beginning of the adoption process and questions started rolling through my brain.

The bio-dad is not around actively, never filed or proven paternity, custody or child support. I have already checked and an adoption can go through without his consent because at this point he has no rights.
According to my attorney if he protests during the process or after it has no bearing. If he tries to make contact or file before the process has started it may or may not effect the adoption.

My worry with that is that my son is only 3. He has never really known the man and I do not want him confused or hurt. Moral support/advise is what I am looking for or a mom who has maybe gone through something similar. I have spoken to an adoption attorney but did not think to ask her that question until now. I am currently waiting on her response.
