There has been a paternity hearing. He is legally the father.
I did not do any sort of custody paperwork or request or anything. I only went to court for paternity.
Also, just some more background-
The father does not have a suitable home to bring a child to and he does not argue that.
My son has lived in my home since he was born (14mos).
The father has never paid one cent for rent, health insurance, or any sort of bills.
