    Visitation rights

    I've had a daughter to a married woman who is separated from her husband and I have been giving support since the child was born. I love my daughter and I do anything her mother tells me to so she'd let me visit her. She has 3 other children from other men and on welfare so I give her cash for my daughter's child support because she doesn't want to have to report it to the welfare departmen but lately she gives me hard times from seeing my daughter ever since she found out that I now have a girlfriend. I give her week notice when i'm visiting and often gets there and no one is home. They would be home only when it's time for the child support. I've never try to file custody or visitation and I would like some advice on how I can without her taking my daughter away and it terrifies me. She has treatens me that I will never see my daughter again if I try to file my rights.

    The only way you can attempt to have a stable relationship with your daughter is if you fight and win for custody or at least visitation. I would recommend consulting with a family law attorney. Your wife's threats of never seeing your child again if you try to file are baseless. It is up to the judge to determine issues of visitation/custody and the judge makes his decisions based on the best interests of the child.
