I am a male living in NC and I will be having a child born
I am a male living in NC and I will be having a child born in November. My child's mother and I are not married, we are on decent terms. After the baby is born and after he/she stops breastfeeding, I'd like to get primary custody. I own my own home in a good neighborhood, have a stable career with benefits, car, financially stable, no criminal record. My child's mother has no criminal record but lives in a small apartment with her parents and two siblings, works part time at a fast food restaurant, has no car or license, and collects welfare. I would like my child to have the best home environment and I believe that would be living primarily with me. How can I bolster my chances of getting primary of full custody if that is even possible? What process do I need to take to have rights as an unmarried father?
My husband had a child by another woman in January. We have
My husband had a child by another woman in January. We have already had the paternity test done and it came back that the child is his. So we have also went to child support and got all that done and they have started taking out the child support out of his check. The problem we are having is being able to have some visitation time. She won't allow him to take her at all to spend time. We were told that we could file a pro se petition for visitation rights. We live in Arkansas and I can't find that form any where. No one will tell us anything and every lawyer we tried talking to doesn't want to hear or tell us any information to help us without paying their outrageous prices. I have found so many other states and their petition but not for Arkansas. If you could help we would appreciate it very much. Thank you

I want to grant custody of my child to my sister and her
I want to grant custody of my child to my sister and her husband for reasons of safety, from myself and my ex-husband. My Ex is not on the birth certificate and has no legal documents stating he has any rights to him at all. How do I start this process? Will a judge grant my ex full custody simply because he is the biological father or will they look at what is the best environment for him?
