is he a part of the child's life? if yes then you may depends on your state laws,but if he wants to be there you should be happy that will help yu out and give you some time to yourself with is golden when you have kids

Even if you were never married, the father could petition the court at any time to establish paternity. Once paternity has been established, then he has the right to file for custody/visitation. Of course, he will also have the obligation to financially provide for the child.

Visit or call your local family court to find out when you can speak to someone there. When I was considering moving out of state (I'm unmarried, my child's father is on the birth cert), I spoke with a liaison at our local courthouse who told me I was well within my rights to move anywhere in the country *until a judge says otherwise.* If a judge has granted full custody, you need not worry. If you have "assumed" custody (i.e., you were never married to the father and the matter has *not* been in court), or if there are pending family court issues I *definitely* recommend going to the courthouse and speaking with someone there.

It would be very unlikely for a judge to award custody to a parent that isn't around. If the father could prove that the child would be better off with him, then maybe, but otherwise I don't think you have anything to worry about.

No. Don't worry about pressure. It's nothing to worry about unless you didin't get the part you wanted. Though that's not even a big problem, so don't cry about that, you can keep trying all the time. So keep trying!!!

That would be unlikely unless she is emancipated or moves in with the baby's father. You best answer is always to contact a local attorney. They will know best what the practice is in your area. My larger worry is that he may attempt to gain custody using this as an assault on your parental fitness.

I would have to say that would depend on what the Mom has done to have to worry about what that situation... The court will do what is in the best interest of the child. If the situation with Dad is better than the situation with Mom, then he has a chance.

I believe that rats are to busy trying to stay alive and trying to find food to worry about music at all.

Dont worry the mother is only trying to make it grow up and trying to stop nurturing it

Supposedly, visitation is not connected to child support. However, if a warrant is out there, your child could end up not being cared for. Perhaps you should seek legal advice as to whether this is a reasonable worry.

I doubt they can TAKE custody. You might want to consider sharing custody until you are out of college and on your feet. Don't worry about your parents. They got you this far, didn't they?

You die so your social life is pretty much non existant. I wouldn't worry about your social life, I would worry about trying to stay alive.
