Well, some lawyers and judges will tell you that visitation and child support are two very different issues. As long as he's willing to get a paternity test, you can go after him for child support through child support enforcement. It makes their job much easier.

It might be a good idea to only get a paternity test done through the court. Fill out the paper work through child support enforcement and let them know he's a possible father and what date the court hearing will be set for so they can be there to collect his information once paternity is established. Good Luck to you.
