I'm adopted and My "supposedly" father doesn't treat me like his own child. Is there any ways to take off his rights to be my dad?

What I mean about not treating me right is that he does not count me as his child. He has another children with his second family and as my mom talks with him about my child support, he would deny me as his child. What can I do to remove his rights as my father?

There is a way that one can terminate a father's rights. However, there are laws that govern how the procedure should be carried. You are required to gather evidence about the claims and then file a petition to the courts. It would be best to seek legal advice from a lawyer.

Legally he adopted you so he cannot deny a child when legally listed as the father except in cruel words. He does owe support for for you. You cannot take away his rights and it wouldn't solve a thing if he isn't exercising his rights anyway. It sounds as if he is not in the home and has separated from your mom. He has the right to see you through visitation and be involved in your welfare decisions ONLY if that's in an agreement. There are most likely no other rights except to be notified as your father should the need arise. However he wants to deny that anyway. So there doesn't seem to be anything you could take away. The thing that IS needed is child support, and that's up to mom to pursue, and emotional care and love towards you, which nothing can be done about if he's not providing it. He has let you down, that hurts, but he is not your everything, you are capable of rising above other people's failures and thriving. Focus on YOUR life not his, you don't need people in your life who have no time for you. This isn't about you as a person, it's about him as a person. YOU will be ok!

Thank you so much for what you have said, I know I don't need those kind of people in my life, but to think that he adopted me for a reason makes me wonder why he can't love me as his own child. I 21 years old and I know that I'm not eligible for the child support, This had happened many years ago, and he still denies me as his son. I know in my heart that I don't need a father like him, and I am so lucky enough to have my mom as my parent for she's been there since then. She never make me feel like I'm adopted. Although my mom does not have her own family and yet don't want to have another family.
