    fathers rights

    I just had a baby with a man who I'm not living with nor married to. He keeps harassing me saying that I have to let him have the baby at his house overnight alone. I don't feel comfortable letting him have the baby without me around because I don't trust him. He wasn't there for any of the pregnancy. He has had problems with drugs and alcohol in the past and has been in rehab for it. He also just got charged with a felony. What are his rights, and do I have to give in and let him take my child? Can he take the child away from me?

    Child custody laws, part of family law, varies from state to state. For example in Indiana, if the parents are not married and have never been married, and there is no custody order in place, then custody lies with the child's mother. If the father wants custody, he will have to establish paternity and ask the court for a custody order.
