-Could you explain your situation a little more?Just to be clear, is it your husband who is seeking custody of the child that is not his or is the biological father seeking custody?
Who do you want to be the father and does the biological father want to be involved?
I'm not quite sure if you are the mother or one of the fathers since you didn't make that clear.
I am the mother and I was married to the non biological father for about 8 years to date, we are still married but have been separated for the past 3 years and the divorce has been going on that long.
The past 3 years my son has gone through alot because of the non biological dad my soon to be ex. It has been a very nasty divorce and he has used my son as a pawn to try to gain control. This past Wed night we had a counseling session and he produced dna papers stating he was not bio father. He told me i had 2 choices : I could either do things his way or he would walk out of the 6 yrs old life.
I do not want him in the 6 yr old life and i have since contacted the other father and he is thrilled to be a part of his life and willing to establish his rights. Will the non biological father now have any legal right to continue to fight me on custody and how can I get the current visitation he has dissolved.?He is messing with my sons head .
My current husband who I am having the battle with is so back and forth one day he says he will walk away, the next he is stating is going to fight me for him. He since then lives with another girl who refers to herself as my sons mom and he is just very confused.
My attny has already asked the courts to establish paternity to show he is not the bio father. So you are saying that even if it determined that he is not the bio father he will still be able to fight me on custody? He will still have visitation rights until the bio father dna is submitted, confirmed and then another court date issuing his rights is in place?
The 6 yr ols has been investigated by DCF 4 times the past yr at his fathers home, last one from the non bio grandmother attempting to assault me in my vehicle, 1 before from the child punching through a glass window and ending up in ER, a dog bite in their care , and being sent in clothes that are too small or cut up:( I know he does allthis to try to hurt me but it is really effecting my son. Is there any right to file for a temp. sole custody until its all settled so that my son is not in crossfire since there is already 1 dna stating he is not the bio father?
You have been most helpful and thanks a million.
Have a lovely evening.
