There is no such thing as a "motion for visitation." If you want visitation established (technically, you have to call it "timeshare"), and you've never been married to one another, you have to file a petition for paternity. The establishment of child support and timeshare (in what's called a "parenting plan") is part of a paternity lawsuit.
Just file a motion asking for contact with your kid. You are responsible for setting the hearing too.
