Father wants full custody of my 1 year old. We went to a mediator and are waiting for results of DNA test. Mediator acted as if I was withholding his fatherly rights when I always let him see his daughter when he wanted. I did not get a chance to say anything and I feel as if I am being judged by the mediator. The father of my daughter always harasses me and degrades me and threatens me whenever he did came to see his daughter. Now I am letting him see her on the weekends (he works all week) and he wants me to bring her and pick her up. The mediator said no overnights and he gets her from 8am to 7pm. Her father however is now demanding to see her on Friday and the visits are whatever times he wants not the time the mediator gave. I would like to know what are my rights? Do I have to agree?
