My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Alabama
I have an 8 month old baby. The father is not listed on the birth certificate. There are no court orders. He does not pay child support. He has however given me a total of 2 small packs of diapers and 3 boxes of diapers, plus $20 one time and put $10 worth of gas in my car 1 time in the whole time the baby had been born. He was in prison when she was born and before that was in drug and alcohol rehab. He was gone my entire pregnancy and was not released from prison until she was a little over a month old. For the past 5 months I have been letting him and his girlfriend get her on the weekends. I feel as though she is not being properly looked after when she is with them. She comes home with bad diaper rashes and sometimes fevers and they say they know nothing of it. Her father thinks that because he knows has everything for her, besides formula, at his house that he does not have to help me out with any kind of support. I am waiting on a court date for child support court, where they will have to prove his paternity since he is not on the BC. I also am not completely sure that he is 100% sober. Would it be right of me to not allow him to see her anymore until the courts say I have to let him? I am not trying to be rude towards him, but he does things that make me mad. He can not communicate with me at all and every time I bring anything up he just gets mad and calls me immature and/or hangs up on me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
