I don't really have an answer. I think him getting custody just depends on your situation at hand. How well you are providing, if your working, if you have a good home environment etc. It is harder for a man to get custody than the woman I think. I would be concerned but not obsessively concerned.

I know lots of women who have custody of their children living with their mothers. You just have to be able to show you can provide, your mom will probably have to be ok saying she is more than willing to help you and your son with everything. But don't stress too much and just be the best mom you can be for your little man. Stay positive and just do everything you're asked to do for the court.

Hi, and I wouldn't worry. He might get visitation rights, but they normally go with the mother's for custody. Especially if you weren't married.

Welcome to the group Hannah! I'm Khelsea, 22 years old and a SAHM to my 13 month old little girl. I'm sorry you're having to deal with custody issues, but I'm sure that you don't have anything to worry about :). Most judges will give custody to the mother unless there is evidence that she is an unfit mother.
