I was just wondering if anyone has ever been in a similar situation . I want to make a will and put down that my brother will raise my daughter not her father in the event of my death. however i never went for custody of my daughter. I was never married to the father and he lives in a different state and hardly ever sees her. but that isn;t the reason. he does not want her full time. just wanted to know do i have to file for custody before writing the will?Answer Question

The child would go to the person in the will unless the father was put on the BC. If the child goes to your brother, the father could still fight it and get the child. My son's bio father's parental rights were terminated by the court so, he wouldn't get my child should I die. Really the only way to guarantee that the child doesn't go to the father is to have dad's right completely terminated, then he wouldn't be able to get the child.
