This is in Tennessee-
My husband is adopting in my son from a previous marriage. We've hired an attorney and my ex husband has been served with papers three weeks ago. For several years, my ex husband has talked about giving him up, he even sent an email a few days before he received his papers saying that he didn't want him, cussed me out, etc. He never calls my son, has seen him less than five times in the 6 years we've been divorced- only one of those visits was unsupervised, and when he returned my son started wetting the bed, let me know of several awful things that happened to him, he was told awful, hateful things, etc. My ex has also skipped several months of child support. He and his new wife have made our lives a living hell.
Now, we have reason to believe that he may be contesting the adoption. As far as I know, nothing has been filed yet and I'm just hoping that he's just "blowing smoke". If he contests this, my attorney has said that we will increase (by almost 4x) the child support and change the visitation to supervised... which he lives in another state, so it would be very difficult for him to do that. I am terrified, I don't know what to expect from this point.
