Since you do not have a court order specifying the terms of custody, you do not have to take your son to visit his father. However, your son’s father does have a legal right to see him . Thus, the father may file for legal and physical custodial rights to ensure that he is able to visit your son. Alternatively, the father may consent to your son not visiting him for a limited time period.
