I have a 10 year old son who's father has been in and out of prison trough out his whole life. He served a 5 year sentence in 2005 & was released in 2010 and then went back in last year to serve another 5 year sentence. My son never had a close bond with his father but did visit him occasionally when he was first released in prison. The 2nd time he went back to prison I ceased all communication to protect my son. I still allowed my son to have a relationship with his dad's family once in a while. I been with my finace for 3 1/2 years and we have a child together. My finacee has been that father figure to my son and treats him as his own. We both found out that my son's father was recently told he has HIV. My fiancee now wants to cut all ties with my son's family for my son's best interest and to protect him. He doesn't want to put him at risk either to get infected. I don't know what to do? My son's family doesn't always call me but his aunt does come around occasionally.
