Does anyone have advice on how to get full custody?

He said he will give me full custody as long as he is allowed to see her once in a while. Can this happen and how do i go about doing this?

Just to court and get custody established. If he is willing to give you full custody it should be pretty easy and painless.

He doesn't have to go to court, but you do. It needs to be established in court if you want the order to be protected. Petition the court for full custody. Send him the paperwork. He doesn't need to show up.

My custody order was granted without my ex husband being there. My attorney forwarded him the judge's order by certified mail, and that was that.

If you are a single mom you already have custody by default. Also, "going to court" can be interperted a few different ways. You need to go file the paperwork at the courthouse, he responds (can do by mail) and then you file some more papers. You can do the whole thing without ever stepping foot in an actual courtroom.

Paternity is probably going to have to be established. He cant just sign it in another state I dont think. I have no idea but if paternity is not even established thyen he has no rights anyways.

Go to court and file. He would have to go to court in his area not by you.
