I have a nine month old son with a man whom I was never married to. I recently filed for child support due to new costs pertaining to day care. My son sees his father every other weekend while I work for a total of 36 hours a month. He has gone on one trip with his father and stayed the night out of town but has never stayed the night at his fathers apartment. His father has never financially helped out. Since receiving the paperwork from the AG, his father is now wanting 50/50 custody and is hoping to come to an agreement in mediation and avoid court altogether. I am not okay with 50/50 custody since my son has spent 90% of his life with me. I offered joint custody and keeping the same schedule that we currently have. What is the possibility of going to court and him being awarded 50/50?
