Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" He signed the paternity affidavit. I'm pretty sure that means he has rights to her. Why don't you want him to have rights?"
I never said I didn't want him having rights..
He's being a dick and keeps threatening me to take me to court for joint custody... He "thinks" I'm trying to keep her from him, which isn't the case.
In regards to getting LO to daycare I have to rely on my sister & mom (plus him) because I get up at 3am - He thinks I put my family in her life before him, but he also doesn't understand that I have to accomodate EVERYONE's schedule since they do help... A LOT!
I've looked online everywhere and everything has stated that if he hasn't taken it to court to be legitimized then I have 100% legal guardianship.
The only two legal ways to be legitimized is
1. Being married at time of birth (which we weren't, so thats ruled out)
2. Court (which he hasn't done)
"By completing the Paternity Acknowledgment Form, the following benefits can occur:
1. The biological father's name gets added to the child's birth certificate
2. Financial support may be received from the father
3. Child may be eligible for Social Security benefits from the father"
" In the State of Georgia, if a child is born out of wedlock, the MOTHER is the only parent who is entitled to custody of the child. A father must file a petition in Superior Court to legitimate his relationship with the child..blah blah blah.
It is important to note than an acknowledgment of paternity does NOT constitute a legal determination of legitimation pursuant.. Therefore, the mother is still considered the ONLY LEGAL parent"
So from what I've gathered, he does not have legal rights. Me just being me, he keeps running his damn mouth and stressing me out, I'm going to show him.
