  • Maybe you should allow visits, but not shared custody, if he wants to see hi son, let him, but for your sons sake, ease into it, make sure it's a saf environment for your son!

  • I would be careful since your son really don't know him well. I would allow visits and see how that goes, but probably not let him take your son anywhere by himself. There have been lots of cases where people have taken their kids on visits and the custodial parent reported the kid missing and some had been found in cars outside drug houses while the visiting parent was inside using drugs and partying. Not trying to scare you, but just be careful. Depending on the type of drugs he's doing, he might put your son at risk just to do drugs.

  • Go to court or let him take you! Dont let your son go with out court orders please cause your his dad might keep him and it wont be kidnapping with out proper court papers. Tell him ok if you ready now to be his dad then we must go to court. I dont want any fights about it and he needs a father. If he serious then he will say ok if not and just wants him when he wants him he not serious he just might have felt guilty for not being around his son. Good luck!

  • My dad is saying to find out what his game is cause why come back now and ask for shared custody and that I should let him have any custody at all cause if he is still doing drugs he could sell the kid for drugs.
