Q: My ex and I share a 3mo son. She gets mad at me. takes the baby. She gets an epo on and says I'm not his dad she...

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!

Timothy Denison answered on Jun 21, 2019

Depends on whether he is supporting the child, which he is to some degree by virtue of paying the rent. If he’s not, then yes, I would file. If he is some, I’d probably wait til I moved out.
