Best Answer

If your name is on the birth certificate as the father, you can sue for visitation in court. Get a lawyer and file a suit. The mother will be compelled to come to the court and abide by its decision.

If your name is not on the birth certificate, you will have to establish paternity. This could be drawn out and involve a lot more lawyers and money.

My name is on the birth certificate, we live in different states and I would like to see more of my son in my home town. Do you think I would be able to do that?

Can you lose visitation rights if you're not the biological father?

If you end a relationship with the child's mother you are not losing visitation rights, you never had visitation rights. Visitation rights are granted by a court. If you and the child's mother were married and you had a long term relationship with the child, or if there are half-siblings of that child (your children with whom you do have visitation rights) the court may award visitation rights. You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues and who can review your situation and explain your options.On the other hand, you can get visitation rights by a court order if you had legally adopted the child.
