Hi all. I am a mom to an 18 month baby and his father has not had contact with us since he was 2 months old. Since that time he has gone to jail for drug related offenses and is currently living in a homeless shelter/ rehab. When our son was a newborn he proved he was not fit to be a father by doing things like driving down the street on the wrong side (with incoming traffic coming) with my son and my mother in the back among other things that were dangerous and abusive. So anyway, we are from Arizona, and we have a child support case coming up. I'm in fear this will make him want to go to court to retaliate against me and request visitation. This terrifies me. I wanted to ask other mothers if they have severed the rights and still get child support and what the steps would be to do this. I want to believe the court would not give him vitiation but it is an unknown. I need some advise!
