My husband had an affair witch resulted in pregnancy. The baby is less than one week old. He signed the birth certificate and the baby has his last name. He's provided all needs for the newborn for both our household and the mother
's because she is unemployed. If he and the child's mother fill out and sign a parenting agreement from rocketlawyer.com and file it with the court, will it be a legally binding agreement? We live in Aiken county, SC. Both parties agree to 50/50 split custody
but the mother of the child is only 19 and lives with her parents and we expect a battle when her parents learn that she signs as they are very controlling and right now, are acting as the baby's parents. Birth mother has neurological disorders and is overwhelmed by childcare and decision making so my husband has had to make all medical decisions so far. My husband is 37 and he fathers three children with me ages 16, 11, and 8, and he raised my oldest son from a previous relationship who is now 20. He's a very knowledgable and hands on father and is a better parent than the birth mother, but we're afraid if it goes to court, he'll only get visitation
, even though he has a stable income, a stable two parent home and siblings, none of which the birth mother can provide. We know that the best thing for the baby is equal time with both parents, but the laws may not agree.
