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?

If you are not married the custody automatically falls on the mother and the father have to go to court to get visitation or custody. If you are married you have equal rights.

It is assumed the parents are not married. The father must establish his paternity and request a visitation order. Once the court issued the visitation order the mother must obey it.
