Children can sense a lot more than we give them credit for. Sit down with your son and ask him why he doesn't want to visit his father. If the father is a good man and you don't want to hurt his feelings, it's time to sit down with the father and discuss this problem. Both of you can work something out. Please don't force your child to do something they don't want to do. There is a reason your child is not comfortable leaving you and visiting his father and it could simply be not wanting to be away from you. If you discuss this with your ex then hopefully you can let the child skip the visitation rights for now or plan to do things together with your ex and son. Many children around this age are not comfortable with "overnighters" or being away from their mothers. Divorce or parents splitting up is far harder on children than adults often realize.

It's certainly true that even very young children are quite intuitive and their feelings should most definitely be addressed. However, if the possessory conservator is not willing to discuss or negotiate other terms, the managing conservator should use extreme caution before taking any action. When an order of visitation is in place it cannot be ignored/violated without the possibility of a contempt of court citation.

This probably varies by state however in order to obtain child support you will need to prove who the father of the child is. If you believe someone from a one night stand is the father, and know his name and his whereabouts you can have the court order a DNA test for this person. If he refuses to submit to the test, in most states he would be declared the father. In fact, if he refuses the test and is deemed the father of the child and it is later found that he is not, in most states he is still required to continue to pay support.

The Court of jurisdiction orders the custody arrangements for the child. It is unusual for an uncle to be granted custody of the child, however he can be if the following conditions exist: 1. The mother is determined not capable or incompetent of raising the child, or, refuses custody of the minor, And 2. The father is determined not capable or incompetent of raising the child, or refuses custody of the minor, And 3. The uncle is capable of raising the minor, And 4. The Court orders that the uncle is capable, and orders custody of the child to the uncle. Visitation has to be worked out first depending on parental challenges.
