What to do if the mother of my son will not let me see him because of what happen between us?

I cheated but not once did I ever expose my son to such a thing. Now that I’m providing for him and working, she still won’t let me see him or take him out for a couple hours. Her reasons are that I might take him around other girls and that I might not take him back. Before it was because I wasn’t providing for him. What should I do? I really want to spend time with my son but her insecurities won’t let her.

You need to file a petition to establish a parental relationship, a corresponding summons, and a request for an order granting you visitation and/or custody.  As a result of the process you will probably also have to pay child support. 

At the end of this process you would have a court order granting you whatever custody/visitation a judge finds is in the best interest of your child.  Your cheating on your ex has nothing to do with this.

If you can afford one, please find a local family law attorney and have them help you out.

Best of luck.
