My sons father wants to fight for custody he has seen my son 6 times in 2 years. When I was 9 months pregnant he signed over rights but when he had to pay child support apparently the paper was no longer valid. He put a restraining order on me and the judge told him it would be harder to see his son because of it and he said he knew that it’s been over a year and he has never filed anything with the court to see his son now he is threatening to get custody of my son is that possible. We were never married.
First off, the terms "custody" and "full custody" have no meaning in Colorado law. Next, if he seeks to establish parenting time with his son, he will most likely be awarded some form of parenting time. Based solely on the information you have provided, it seems highly unlikely a court would make him the primary residential parent and might even require him to engage in reintegration therapy with the child before granting him additional parenting time. The threat by one parent to go and get "full custody" is a common one and used primarily when the threatening parent wants something else, like for the other parent to stop collecting child support from them.
