I believe I am the Father of a son, but the Mother is married to someone else. I dated Mother while she and her husband were separated, but now they are back together. We had sex during the time we were dating and the child was born 9 months later—perfect timing for the child to be mine. Mother and Mother’s husband will not let me see the child, and quite frankly, hide him from me. I want to see my son. What can I do? I do not have any other children.

You have a chance for visitation, and here’s what you will need to do. North Carolina has a very strong presumption that a child born of and during a marriage is the child of the Husband to the marriage. You will have to file a lawsuit asking for visitation and asking that the presumption be overcome.
