My daughter is 10 & her bio dad hasn't seen her since she was 6mo. My ex was abusive, drank HEAVILY, & was involved in drugs, so I took my daughter and ran. We were never married, but he is listed on the birth certificate. Fast forward 10 years, I am married to a wonderful man and contacted my ex yesterday through his brother, hoping to get him to sign over paternity, expecting him to be in jail/prison or etc. To my surprise he has turned his life around, has two more kids and a wife, & wants to bring them across the country to meet their "big sis". our daughter knows my husband isn't her bio dad (i always told her he lives far away, never any "bad mouthing"), but he is her daddy. I am 100% open to allowing her to get to know that side of her family, providing he really is on the right path. I guess my question is do I still push for him signing parental rights over and allow visitation? OR do I allow visitation and ask for child support (I never filed for child support, because I was afraid he would get visitation rights because he was a dangerous man at that time). Our financial situation is fine, and IF I do ask for child support I will just put it into a savings account for my daughter when she's grown. AND if I ask for child support, do I go through the courts or an out of court agreement? Thanks for any advice u have.
These past two years I've been super unhappy, its like our "spark" disintegrated. Honestly only reason I am even still living under the same household is because of our daughter, being jobless and I know for certain his mother will destroy me and he will take my daughter from me.
