i have found out that my 6 month old son's biological father is my ex from 1 year ago. this was found out 2 weeks ago via a home paternity test. he has gotten advice from his lawyer and wants to have me agree to joint custody and joint legal decisions because "at this age it is important for the infant to get to know his father". I on the other hand want bi weekly visits every other weekend. my son is 6 months old and i fear that it will put too much stress on him. how do i file physical custody. do i need a lawyer, and what are my chances of every other weekend being requested? he has no license, is a convicted felon, and lives on a premises with his mother that he is not suposed to be at per lease requirements.
