Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
I'm a licensed family law attorney in Florida and I believe I can provide assistance. Before beginning, I need a few things clarified:
He was removed about 6 mos ago and he is with the fathers family. The father of the 2 year old is in jail. I am the father of the unborn
The bad news is that it sounds like your girlfriend may have some serious problems on her hands. The good news is that it sounds like you have an excellent case of obtaining custody of the unborn child. However, this could be seriously harmed if you intend to remain with the girlfriend. I would be surprised if DCF didn't attempt a termination of parental rights (TPR) for the girlfriend. If you intend to remain with her, they would likely want to do a TPR against you as well.
