Unfortunately i made the mistake of putting the father on the birth certificate without thinking of the consequences if he got deported or simply decides to not be involved. He currently lives in TN and in TN when I lived there we had a domestic violence incident and currently have an order of protection in place. He served time in jail and went to ICE custody then later released on bail. Now, he might be in the process of getting a lawyer to try to prolong his stay. Not a fact, just a maybe. I don't want to hunt him down every time I would need to make a decision, like getting a signature for a passport or making life decisions for my daughter. Would a certified letter help or is going through courts the only way?
