Gets him is there any way I can get him back before we take a DNA test? Also she has been deemed unfit twice before.

Timothy Denison answered on Jun 22, 2019

You need to file your own custody action. If she says he’s not yours, the child is not yet legally determined to be your son so you have no rights. However, if the dna proves he’s yours, then you get an order for possession and her manipulations will end!
