You can always file a motion to modify /change the language in your decree. One of the easiest ways to accomplish your request would be to get the opposing party to agree to the change. Then present the motion and the signed agreed order modifying... to the Judge for signature. It is always best to review your specific facts with a local attorney. TJP

Julie A. Rice's answer
Notarized by who? The mother? Won't stand up in court. If you don't want the legitimized father to get involved for some reason, then DFACs involved. The biological, legitimate father has rights over you unless the court and/or DFACs decide otherwise.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
What you need to do is consult with an attorney in Kansas first about perhaps filing a petition for modification. You need to at least learn what needs to be done. Technically, in my opinion, she has not abandoned the children. You can also see an attorney in FL about domesticating and then modifying the Kansas judgment, since the parties now reside in FL.
