Should I file for custody?

I'm a single mom with a 20 month old son. His father and I were never married. We get along but lately he has been drinking more and more....again.... I'm wondering if anybody knows how custody would work in my case? Do I need to file for custody if we were never married? and if I file will the courts make him pay child support or is that a seperate deal?
