Q: Father never seen baby now she is 13 and would like full custody. He has never been around and he live in Spain. How can I take him the papers that the court gave me. I have no contact with him just his family?
A: You’d need to have him served with the papers. If he’s not opposing you having sole custody, he can also sign a consent acknowledging receipt of the papers, waving any arguable jurisdictional defect & consenting to you having custody.
