I am a single disabled mother, I have never been married, I have a 4 year old and I have been broken up with her Dad for over a year we have 50/ 50 custody agreement we worked out ourselves no lawyers or court, but we have been fighting some never around our daughter, but we have argued through text messages a couple times. Yesterday I was upset since I had found out how many women he had slept around the last time we had sex, my X-boyfriend threatened to bring me to court and take our daughter away from me, saying he already had a lawyer
At this point he has not established his rights. Therefore you have sole legal and sole physical custody regardless of any outside agreement. If you are afraid of this happening I suggest that you file a Petition for Paternity and get a parenting plan established ASAP. Good luck.
You should speak to an attorney immediately. If money is an issue, I suggest you contact your local Legal Aid office. Good luck.
