Right now I am 6 months pregnant. I am not with the father. This is my first child. He has already threatened to take my child away from me. He is verbally abusive to me and I'm scared that he is going to try to take her. I don't feel safe having my daughter around him. What are my rights? If I don't put his name on the birth certificate will that protect me at all? If he legally tries to get custody what can I do to stop him? I don't care about child support as much as I care about protecting her.
