My question involves paternity law for the State of: New Mexico (?)
My 6yo's dad and I were never married and he is not listed on my son's birth certificate. He has verbally and in writing acknowledged his paternity. He is not a U.S. citizen and was here on a work visa when we were together. I'd like to establish legal paternity and petition for support. He was out of the country the last time we communicated and now I don't know where he is.
Where do I start with this? Is there some way I can have his passport "hot listed" to prevent him from getting a US visa if he applies (if he's not back in the US already)?
