Long story but essentially my partners mother made her second partner her daughters legal father. She had no legal father on record prior. My wife didnt even know until ee got together and I asked who it was on her ID. I know…
Long story short they got divirced over 20 years ago. He is for lack of a nicer way to put it, a piece of shit. Violent, gambles, always in debt etc. We never see him but I started getting worried when.our company started taking off (in my wifes name)and started wondering if he gets in debt and dies, is there any possibility his problems can become ours?
Second, more likely, worry is illegal loans and the debt collectors come. This has happened with other members of his family when he borroeed too much. They changed names and abandoned their house and moved away.
So we want to get rid of him and his legal connection to my wife for said reasons. But am greatly unaware even tge vocabulary to start reading about the process. In theory he wouldnt care, but who knows…bit of a whacko.
Appreciate any suggestions or places to start!
