HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.You will be served with the Petition for Custody. If you do not get it, call the clerk of the court in the county where the Father lives and request they email your or mail you a copy as you have not been served yet. You will need to oppose it. If it is filed in the Father's county, you can request it be dismissed for improper jurisdiction.
If it is file in your county, because that is the child's home state, then you need to respond and opposed the custody. You should consider consulting with a local attorney to help you.
