Question
I have 2 boys one is 21 and the other is 17 i do not get to see them cause the mother lives in another state. she wants me to sign off rights and i have tried to be in their lives but the mother refuses to give me an address as to where i can write to them. Is there anything you can do to help with this matter.

Answer
Sean,
The age of being an adult is 18 so your 21 YO can see you if he wants. You can also go a google search and probably track him down. If you have joint custody I don't think she can legally keep him from you. I would contact an attorney and see what your right are.
