Need advice about my 17 yr and him not wanting to visit my home because he wants to be with his friends all the time. So he lives with his dad

Generally, in the US, by the age of 17, the child is given choice of residence. His father should be encouraging a relationship with you, but he cannot force the kid at this point. Keep in contact with your son, see if perhaps he won't meet you for a weekly outing for dinner or something along those lines.
