Going through a separation , child's father and myself are not married and he is not on the birth certificate ( so no paternity established ) . We used a MFR as a mediator , but could not come to an agreement . Father wants to reside full time in the home caring for his son until the child is 18 ( he has been the care provider , as I have been the working mom ) or is demanding full custody if asked to leave the house ( and has stated he would take my son if I removed him from the home ) . - Does he have any legal rights if paternity has not been established ? - In what circumstances could he actually take my son from me ? - Do I need a lawyer to represent me in any way , or are these unsubstantiated threats ?
