my son is 16 and his Dad was in prison for 16 yrs and has never seen him and never paid child support, we get medical assitance so of course since he is out they are going after him for child support, well i just got a nasty email from his Dad saying he will go after visitation now,a nd my son wants nothing to do with him because of what he did and he is just a jerk and a liar, I was wondering since my son is 16 is it his choice???he says he will refuse to go to Indiana and wants nothing to do with him.
Yes, it is your son's choice. After this long, and his father not being in his life for all of his 16 years, a judge is not going to force your son into letting his father be a part of his life, child support or not. Just because a parent pays child support does not give him or her the right to being a part of a child's life. A judge will take all things into account and I simply don't see a judge forcing visitation on your son.
