My husband and I have been fighting a little bit lately. Ok alot-a-bit. Ok everyday. And I had a few hours during nap time today to sit down and think while my our daughter slept about maybe getting a legal separation to think things through. The thing is, our daughter is not actually OUR daughter. Legally she is mine. He is her STEP father and has not gotten legal rights on her like we had been talking about when we first married. But he has been her other care giver for over 2 years (she is only 3). Does that, in the eyes of the law, make him a primary care giver? If so does that make him liable to pay child support? And is there a chance for a custody/ visitation battle?Answer Question

No rights, no support. He can't try and get custody. The only thing you could get is alimony or spousal support if you live in one of the few states that have that.
