I am paying child support for my son and a paternity test has confirmed that he
is my son. I have visitation rights, but have stopped picking him up due to the
mother causing problems every time i do. She has threatened to take me to
court to take away my custody rights (because I wont pick him up during the
times that the court said I was allowed to) and change his last name to her own.
Can she take away my rights to see my son without my consent since I am
paying child support? If I gave my rights up as a father and allowed for his last
name to be changed, wouldn't this mean that I would no longer pay support?
