About 4 years ago me and kids dad broke up (we are not married) and i gave him ( the father) 6 months of parental recognition and i kept in contact with him and a month into it all he changed his phone number and i went lookibg for my 3 kids and he did get ahold of me one last time and said my kids didnt want to see me but he never let me speak to them either . Now its been about 4 years now and his family(the father) got ahold of me and let me knkw my oldest is a runaway who is 15 and that he has cut off all communication with his family members as well .

You can go to the courthouse to see if there are any records. If not, you will need to hire an attorney to advise you of your situation. Neither I nor any other attorney can or will legally advise you without being retained. This form is for general legal info not specific legal advice.
I think you should talk to an attorney. If you are low income, you will likely qualify for free/low cost services from Southeastern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (SMRLS). The Women's Shelter may also be a resource for you.
