I wrote a novel about college pregnancy and could use some help with the sequel

Hi all,

Recently I published my first novel called FRESHMAN FORTY on Amazon. It's about a college freshman who finds out while she's away at school that she is pregnant. Being away at college makes it too easy to hide and she doesn't tell her father or the baby's father for the whole pregnancy. 

Now I'm working on the sequel and I am looking for some interesting custody angles for my plot. Does anyone have any unique custody experiences with their baby's father they'd be willing to share?

I'm leaning towards making a real hardship for my main character, whether it's being required to drive long distances every other weekend  to bring the baby to see the father or some other difficult court order that makes staying in college hard.

Thanks for any input!!

Why does it have to be difficult? Why not have the baby's father step up and be a good dad and help mom finish college. You know, work together as parents?

Good luck ! My custody experience is having sole custody, my ex sees him once a month in a supervised location. My ex doesn't call or check in with my son during the month, only to arrange a meeting place. So not too exciting or drama filled.

How about he fights her for full custody, she almost looses due to some dark secret he discovers about her past.  Then you will need a hero lawyer who fights for her and at the same time sweeps her off her feet and wins the case!  How's that for imagination????

Yeah. There's definitely going to be some curve ball here considering she doesn't even tell the baby's father about the baby until after the she is born. I'm leaning towards a custody battle b/c she didn't think he'd want to be too involved.

That would make sense, but sadly most people are more interested in the negative than the positive. I guess it all going rough makes for more interesting reading?
