This morning I found out that my x can not sign away his rights as long as my son is on medicaid. I have been trying to find out how to go about getting limited supervised visitation established in case he ever decides to pop up. I do not want my son frightened. He is a stranger to him of course. He does pay child support and has since Oct 08 but its been 2.5 yrs of no attempted contact. (In fact he has been invited to birthdays etc and does not respond.) Has it been long enough that I can file? I have tried researching the Texas laws but I haven't found the answer to this yet. I called a local lawyers office and she just told me that if he chooses to stay away leave it alone and if he ever does pop up I can call for a civil stand by and if the child is upset they will not let the ncp take him. I don't want to put my son through that. I also don't want to have to wonder if or when he could get a wild hair and just say here I am. Anyone know where I can find out?
