Sounds like some male undeserving of the title "father."
You have every right to be upset with him. Not only for the emotional abuse he handed out to you over the years, but from what you've said...he's jsut basically given up all rights to even see or know his own flesh and blood. How messed up is that?
I'm really sorry to hear about that I don't know what else to say about that right now.
Even if he doesnt want time privalages with you or your siblings...Child support is mandatory it's not like your mom's getting a gift for letting him see you..tell him how you feel...if that goes bad then just try to cope without him
You have every right to feel the way you do. However, I don't think your Mom should let him off the hook so easily. I'm sure one day you plan to go to college and make something of yourself. He can't sign off his rights unless she agrees to it. If he doesn't want to see you, then that's his loss, but he still has an obligation to take care of you. Your Mom should continue to go for child support. It doesn't sound like your time is worth wasting on him, so just go for what you need to take care of yourself!! Good luck and keep us posted!!
