Your son cannot put himself on child support. However, you can file a petition with the family court to establish paternity and to determine the amount of child support you need to pay as well as a timesharing agreement for you to see your son.
Your baby's mother is not permitted to keep you from seeing your son due to payment or nonpayment of child support.
I hope I have answered your questions. If I have not, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions you may have. Also, please do not forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
Right, but you will still need to petition the court to establish the child support payment and the timesharing.
You will need to get a timesharing agreement down because the amount of child support to be paid depends on income and custody of the child.
