More often than not the courts side with the mother hands down. It would probably help if you maybe looked into going back to school or getting a part time job and looking for suitable child care. That way if he were to take you to court you would have a plan of action as to how you would support your child financially, outside of the child support that you would of course be receiving.

The courts are usually very good at judging the character of parents. As long as you keep doing everything you need to for child you are fine. They pick the parent that is most stable, able to provide not only materialistically but emotionally as well. It helps that you are with your child the most. I do advise you to be civil with your boyfriend so when you go to court you look good as trying to keep him the baby's life. Good Luck to you mama.
