I once lived in another state where I had a child with a now ex-boyfriend. I now live in Tennessee and my son's birth state gave me custody and allowed me to be in Tennessee with my son.
His father has not even attempted to contact me about my son in over a year and also does not comply with the courts order to submit three drug tests a year to me. He also still owes me about six thousand dollars in back child support. I would like to have him sign his rights completely over to my fiance so my fiance can adopt my son. My son adores my fiance and is basically his little shadow and does everything with him. My son does not even care for his own father because when his biological father was in the picture my son would cry everytime he had to go with his biological father.
Is there a way to have my ex sign his rights over without getting a lawyer involved especially considering he lives in another state?
