My daughters father has not been in her life since she was one year old. Nor is he on her birth certificate. He was in jail when she was born, he has been on and off drugs. The past year hes been telling me he has been talking to a lawyer and trying to get paper work to get visitation rights what do you think I should do I don't want him in her life i never asked him for any child support I feel her has anger issues he has threatened me and my family in the past. Do you think i should seek legal help or should i wait till he serves me with papers of some sort but mind you like i said he is not on her birth certificate so wouldn't he have to prove he is the father first? I want to make sure that i have sol custody of her and if by chance he did get visitation he would have supervised visit
