12 years ago i had a child, and was not made aware that it was mine. At age 8 i found pictures, on FB, of the mother and child, who looked like me. I got paternity test done and child support started through her county. Through the process i learned that her husband had abused her and was suppose to serve a 10 day sentance for it. I talked to a lawyer and he didn't agree with what she was asking for (no visitation), and advised me not to sign. Little did i know she had already taken off to Colorado with the husband, i still talk to her father and his sister who both confirmed their disappearing without telling anyone. So case closed due to not knowing her whereabouts. Now, 2 years later i get a letter from Arizona child support services saying she wants to get paternity and such going again. To which i call and say paternity was established, im on the birth certificate, you can reopen the previous case. They agreed, and i again looked up the fathers record in Arizona and he again was charged with domestic abuse and was extradited back to wisconsin to serve all sentances here. I am in limbo now and just am looking for assurace without paying a lawyer. I've always told her and child support people, that i just want to know my son! Does anyone know my rights...will I have to pay support? Can visitation b setup between Arizona and wisconsin. Can she b in trouble for harbor ing a fugitive? I'm sorry i am a father on a mother site, I am desperate for advice, I will get a lawyer but does anyone know my and/or her rights?

Thank you and understand if no response is given base on my sex,

Unfortunately, this is not something that you can handle without an attorney. It will be in your best interest to obtain one, and pursue not just support/visitation, but possible joint custody, if the child is being raised in an abusive household.

Good luck with your efforts.
