  • absent father Virginia

    I'm 15 and I live with my mother in VA. My father is in jail in Texas. I've wrote him but haven't talked to him in over a year. I talk to my grandpaents, my uncles, my aunts, and my cousins on his side. He owes over $10,000+ (I'm not sure) in child support. My mom has got remarried but is getting a devorice. I want to know how to get his rights taken away if something should happen to my mom. And how can I change my last name to my mother's birth last name. Help please.

    This is frankly not your legal matter. You have no standing to do anything, legally speaking.

    If your Mom wishes to, she can petition the court to have your name changed and perhaps assign standby guardianship in case anything happens to her. The court may or may not honor this request depending on the circumstances.

    But until and unless a court terminates his rights, this guy is and will remain your father.

          I'd strongly recommend an attorney.
