My son is 5 years old. I was in a relationship with his biological father for 4 years. When I found out I was pregnant, he was going through some personal issues. He decided he wanted nothing to do with our son. I had our child and he mailed me a check 2 months after he was born with $30 stating thats all he could afford. I felt threatened after mailing back the check for my safety. Fast forward 5 years, I know where he is now, he has a great job, was married the month after our son was born, and still nothing. I am thinking about taking him to court so my son either will have financial or emotional support from his biological father. Can he request custody, thats my main concern, he has personal issues that will be with him for life and it makes me very uncomfortable.
