I have PP asking bees opinions on terminating my son’s father’s rights and telling him about our son starting preschool. Ok so the preschool thing I still haven’t gotten a response from him and I attempted contacting him both by phone and text message. I can’t terminate his rights until I have been married 1 year and my FH is willing to adopt my son. So now to another HUGE issue my son currently has my last name and the middle I chose for him at birth is not what he goes by now. The story behind that is my ex really stepped up when our son was young and asked if his middle name could be changed to my ex’s first name I aggreed but we never got a chance to legally change it. So my almost 3 year old goes by his first name and my ex’s name as his middle name also my ex’s last name. This name is tattooed on me so I have decided it just needs to be legalized as his name. Ok so now that he is starting preschool I started the process to have his name changed so there is no confussion for him when he learns to write his name or when the teacher uses his first and last name. The ONLY problem is I can’t get ahold of my stupid ex to concent to the legalization! UGH beyond frustrated he won’t answer phone calls or return text messages. My lawyer can make him consent but it’s a lengthy process. (btw my lawyer is a friend and is doing this at no charge thank god but my FH does work on her machines for her at no charge so I guess it’s like a barter system). I just don’t even know what to say to him anymore. I want to send him one last pleading message before making my lawyer go after him. What should I say to him?
