You will need to file for custody. If you were never married to the mother of your daughter, you will file in Juvenile Court in the county you live in. You will also need to establish paternity (if you have not already done so). Check with Legal Aid to see if you qualify for free legal services. If not, perhaps an attorney in you area will accept payments rather than requiring the fees up front.
Good luck to you.See question

In Ohio, an unmarried woman who gives birth to a child automatically has legal custody of her child. An unmarried father has no parental rights until a court grants those to him, even if he is paying child support. The father of your child is trying to bully you, or the information he received is inaccurate. It does not sound like he is threatening to kidnap your child, however.
Best of luck to you.See question
