My sons mum and I separated before he was born. I have seen him nearly every week since he was born he is 6 now. She met a new man 3 months after he was born and started to get my son to call him dad when he started to talk and calling me by my first name. At first I protested but was made to feel as if I had no rights for my son and had no right to be called dad. He is 6 now and for the last year I have been able to have him down every second weekend (due to distance) after standing up to her. My son has called me dad a couple of times but he refuses to call me dad because he called his step dad dad first. How can I get my son to call me dad? I pay above my child support but am still asked for more money to pay for things that should be covered. I don't like conflict but I need to be able to stand up to her more and would really appreciate some advice

I wouldn't be surprised if he's taken out a second mortgage on our home, at this point. He's gotten loans in my name, he's...
