My son is 8 years old and his biological father is listed on his birth certificate. He pays child support but in 2012 he's only visited him twice. I started keeping track beginning this year specifically. But generally since he was one years old he will call once in a while and asks for his son the day before without advance notice. My fiance wants to adopt my son after we get married. This kind of instability from his biological father is not the best interest for my son. I have always tried to be the adult and arrange time for his father to put his son first. Unfortunately he always had other priorities in mind besides his son. Now he believes he has rights to his son when he feels like it.
