We are not married nor do we plan on getting back together. I would like to know my standing rights and the fathers if I put him on the birth certificate, with his consent. What are my chances of having sole custody if he decides to go to court to achieve some kind of custody later if the child is still at a tender age? I know he will need to provide a parenting plan and if he asks for joint custody, am I able to refuse it?
