Clearly the father does not want to be involved. He just wants to try to control you and give you grief whenever possible.
Since he does not want to be involved with your son you are correct to stop pursuing that. You will be far better off not dealing with the father at all in a direct manner. Since you have custody of your son you need not take any action other than to obtain the child support that you are due.
So the best thing for you to do is communicate with him ONLY through the legal system. If you have an Order for child support have the collection of the support processes through the Division of Child Support:
That way you do not have to deal with the father to obtain the support.
Keep a journal and maintain records of any harassment threats or intimidation. Try to obtain witness statements from fiends or coworkers who witness these events. Once you have sufficient evidence you can pursue a No Contact Order throguh the courts. Once the No Contact Order is in place he will be at risk for contempt charges if he or his girlfriend contact you.
Seek out a local Family Law Attorney to help you with this. It will be worth a little money to do these things correctly so that you can put yourself in the best position for you and your son.
