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.

Single mother with sole legal and physical custody of child looking to move out of state what are the laws?

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.

The father of your daughter doesn't pay child support for the first year of her life and hardly seen her can he still get custody?

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.

Can my 14 yr olds daughter's father stop paying child support if she is pregnant?

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.

If a father is an alcoholic with two DUI's on his record and lives in a home where there is parties often can he be given custody?

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.

Should the child go with the father when you have custody but his visitation if he has a warrant for his arrest for back child support?

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.
