I have been dealing with child support problems sense the beginning of my daughters life she is now 4 & her biological father has not seen her sense she was 6months I tried for the longest time for him to have a relationship with his daughter but he didn't want one & neither has he paid child support either. We have had countless of court hearings & he has even signed over all his rights thinking if he done that he wouldn't have to pay child support for her even though he hasn't paid anything on her & half of them he doesn't even show up for. But just today I received a letter in the mail stating that the respondent which is (him) had been admitted to a psychiatric ward & had been appointed a Guardian Ad Litem? to oversee his decisions I am just wondering what does that mean? And that person doesn't have access to my child do they? She doesn't know him nor anyone in his family they never wanted anything to do with her but I am upset and nervous over all of this & I don't know what is going on. Please any information would be great!

Do you have a lawyer? I would talk to the lawyer about that!! I dont understand why you are getting any kind of paperwork from him if he hasssigned his rightsover.

I know that when they are assigned to children they are there to look out for the best interest of that child. They make visits and report in court what they feel should happen in the case. Never heard of an adult having one but they shouldn't have any access to your child.

If u have it on paper through court and your lawyer that he signed over his rights then neither him nor his representative have any rights to your child. They probably only sent u that letter letting u know where he is. Even though he signed over his rights to ur child the state still has to let u know his wearabouts.
