Q. How long does my son's father have to be absent to be considered abandonment, and terminate his parental rights?
A: Hello and thank you for using Justia. There is an old staying, " No news is good news". This applies to your case. If he has not claimed afiliation, is not on the birth certificate nor never married to you he has no legal parental rights thus you have the full custody and "parens patria" of your Child.

According to the information you wrote, I donot think you want to get him involved. Even though you and your Child have a legal right to obligate him to respond and asume his paternal rights and obligations as the father of your Child, pay Child support, visit with your Child and leave him the Inheritance it would be in your and your child's best intrest to carefully evaluate if you really want to claim your legal rights or if it is best to wáit until and if the biológical Father claims his paternal rights.

If you need additional information please feel free to contact me directly.
