I was 19 years old when I got pregnant (accidentally) by my boyfriend at the time. When I told him, he broke up with me and wanted me to have an abortion. He wanted to come back about a month before the baby was due. I gave him another chance. When the baby was 2 months old he told me he wanted to get legal rights to the infant. He had previously told me we would get married after we both finished college and got careers. I agreed to this, so I questioned why he wouldn't just wait and get his rights when we were married. He told me he did not want to wait that long. Now, he is taking me to court. Does anyone know what rights could my (ex-boyfriend now) could possibly get in the state of south carolina?
*****Also, he was adopted by a man he lives with (that's of no relation to him) one month before the baby was born that he now calls his "dad" and he helps my ex pay for the court fees, lawyer, etc. Should I be worried this i

I agree that he has just as much rights as you. He could get physical custody and get support from you. In most states he would get joint decision making custody, you would get physical custody for now, and he would get visitation. You would get support. As the child got older he would get more and more visitation.
If you are breastfeeding you will be more likely to get custody and he may get less visitation. You may be able to relactate if you aren't breastfeeding.
