OK, so really long story short: I am no longer with the father of my 16 month old daughter, haven't been since like November '09. Since December he has only seen her about 3 times, and had little contact because he didn't have a phone and didn't call for her birthday. Now he has a phone and is staying with some friends about an hour and half away. He saw her last weekend for Father's Day, she doesn't really know who he is, she acts the same way with him that she does with the people she knows from my church. Now the here's the problem: He says he wants to come to where I'm living, with my parents and my daughter, and pick up Kyree for the weekend. I said no, because he hasn't seen her enough for her to be comfortable staying with him away from me. Now, what our his rights and my rights regarding my daughter in this situation? See first post for additional information regarding conversation with the dad last night.Answer Question
Are you married? If so then his rights are no different than yours. Father's rights differs from state to state, but I believe as a general rule you would be considered the custodial parent (if unmarried) because you are the primary caregiver, giving you the freedom to say when he can and cannot see her. If he doesn't like it then he should take you to court and get a custody/visitation agreement in writing.
