I have a 3 month old son, his father and i are not together at the moment but we are getting along and trying to work things out to be together for our son. He has no custody or visitation of our son legally as of right now, paternity has just been proven so he has rights. Now HIS mother has been texting me and calling me every single week since my son has been born because she wants to see him A LEAST once a week but my sons father does not have a good relationship with his mother because of the way she treated him and how she raised him so he doesn't want to have any part in providing visitation to his mom but neither do I, I do not feel like it should be my responsibility to encourage a relationship with my son and my EXs mother if he doesn't even want to do it, how is that fair? I just got a petition from her stating that she is taking me to court for court ordered visitation with my son, this is crazy! I do not want to have to follow a court ordered visitation scheduled for the rest of my life with this lady when I am not even with her son that just doesnt make sense to me why it would be my responsability. I have been letting her come see him about once or twice a month for a couple house so its not like I'm keeping him from her i just don't feel like spending every week with her. I have not stopped replying to her and talking to her though because i found out she was recording me and saving every text i sent her to try to use it against me in court somehow to prove i am keeping him from her when i am obviously not i am just not letting her see him on her terms and whenever she asks me.i feel as the parent i do not have to let her see him every week. Does she even have a case? Do grandparents really win visitation in situations like this? I am in new york state is that effects anything
