You should absolutely obtain an attorney if you do not believe the father is not fit to have the child, because child protection is one of the most negligent and incompetent agencies you would ever deal with and their interest is not the child, but the easiest way out of handling something. So if you believe the father is unfit, you need to get yourself your own attorney to protect the baby and your interests to prevent harm from coming from the child.
