How did u get sole legal and physical? i know my ex.will sue.me.for.custody in the future (just dont know when). Hes not on the birth certificate and we were never married. I had a temp restraining order against.him, hes mental and now hes doing gay porn for a living (i havent talked to him but i.can track it online). I had to.block.him and his mother feom not only my phone.but my parents cuz thsy were harrassing us.

We have joint but really....he only takes them every other weekend.  I guess the only downfall is I have to tell him each time they go to the dr or whatever and its annoying cuz most of the time he doesnt care.  He will say "Let me know how they are doing".  I just want to scream at him "What do you care???!!!  Are you going to come over here and clean up puke and hold them all night while they break a fever??"  No.  Ugh.
