I was wondering how likely is it my sons biological dad will get visitation (im pretty sure he'll ask for it because his mom's been wanting to take my son to Jamaica since he was born in '07) if I ask for child support. We seperated when my son was about 1 1/2 and he was soon after incarcerated. He barely worked while we were together I however had 3 diff FT jobs over the course of our relationship. Since our seperation he has done nothing for my son, I have asked him, but he tells me he doesn't have it. We have a long history of domestic violence where the police were involved even at my job, and situations including my son where the DFACS dept got involved. I was cleared but he failed all the drug tests and refused to complete his parenting courses. My family feels its not fair I work 50+ hours a week to solely support my son while he has never done anything but I don't want to put my sons sanity at stake. I have no ill feelings towards my ex, I've seeked counseling and moved on with my life but I don't want his bad parenting ways to negatively affect my sons recovery from his tough pass. Is there any possibility that if I were to file for CS that I could request he not get visitation with all these things beings factors.
Also my son has a wide male support system; my father, my bother in-law, and my fiancé have all stepped in and been very supportive of my son in his upbringing.
