My ex and I decided to go through the court system to do child support and custody. What do we do? Do I have to hire a lawyer? I want him to be able to see her as much as he can and I just want everything to be fair. I want primary custody though. I've never done this before and I'm not sure how to get the process started. Where do I go? What do I do?

You can find out a lot of info online. You should be able to find child support guidelines for your state and custody and visitation guidelines. You want to have support taken from the father's pay and put into your bank so the two of you never have to talk about money.
What many states do is have joint custody for making decisions and one parent has physical custody and the other parent visitation. Some states do things like one week and one parents the next at the others. If the father gets a lawyer then you will need a lawyer. He could get custody and you could have to pay support.
There is no fair.
