I have complete full custody of my dd. Her father is in prison and will be there for another 4 years. She really does not know him at all. If I were to die she is to live with my mother. Can I do that? Or will he get custody and decide where she will live?

If hes in prison you can, but once he's out and has legal claim he can petition for custody and as sole living parent he's likely to get it unless he can be proven unable to care for her.

Your best bet is to talk to him now, when he's down and out, offer him smokes or something to sign away his rights, once he does that, she's all yours.

It would depend on what your state laws are and if he has lost  his parental rights for the child. You should really consult a family law attorney in your area

also put your mother as beneficiary on your life insurance, and give her enough to have finances to raise your daughter, it would help in the courts, especially if your baby daddy has little or no income.

The goal would be if I were dead and my mother has her...she would fly to India for dd to gradually become used to her father...eventually moving to be with him. That is the plan now. He would never sign away the rights to his child. He made a horrible mistake but he loves her.

I was afraid of that.

Honestly, he would pick my mother. He loves my mom. I'm actually more afraid of his family. They have a lot of money...millions and millions. I'm scared that once I am out of the way they might butt in.

Then please consult with an Attorney and see what can be worked out. IF if he is agreeable,then something should be worked out and put down in writing....Good Luck
