My former boyfriend has been sending me emails since the birth of my son asking me to issue paternity testing to him so he can start visiting my son and legalize a visitation schedule. I feel I am under no legal obligation to issue him a paternity test or let him visit my son. I have a good job and I do not want or need child support from him. Now he claims he will take me to court to establish paternity. If he takes me to court, and he tests positive, will he be able to get joint legal custody, even if he has never seen my 11 month old son? I am in a new relationship and do not want my Ex over my house or my son away from home.
