My son's bio-father (we call him sperm donor) decided he wants to take him for the first time after almost 4 months. He doesn't pay child support and hasn't filed for custody. If I have reason to feel uncomfortable leaving my ds with him do I have to? I suggested that we meet somewhere and he can visit him while I'm there but he says thats awkward and he wants me to drive him to his house (an hour away) and then leave him there and pick him up later. He won't agree to meet me somewhere and I don't feel comfortable leaving my ds with him yet. Do I have to let him take him? I live in CT.

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to withold visits due to lack of child support payments. You said he hasn't filed for custody, does that mean you haven't established support payments or visit times through the court? In that case, you can do what you want until he takes you to court. I would demand he meet you at least halfway, because that's only fair. Since it's been so long since the last visit, I would also insist that the visit be limited to a supervised, neutral-location visit for the first time or two, then gradually working up to more time. I think in some states you can also insist on no overnights until they are at least 1.
