My question involves paternity law for the State of: Texas/Florida
My son was born May 2010 in Florida however we have been residents of Texas since June 2010. I regret adding his father's name to his birth certificate now for many reasons.
At 30 days old, my son was abused by his father. I need to figure out how to rid any affiliation with his father without causing a war between us. he doesnt offer support and doesnt do anything for my son. He will not sign over rights willingly and I really dont have the money to put up a fight in court to possibly not win.
I want to change his name and go from there but I am unsure of what I can really do or who can help. I dont know the first thing in making this happen or who to ask for help. I do know that I have to protect my child and at 7 months old, i need him protected now rather than when he is bigger and walking etc.
