Re: Unmarried Couple
whoever told you that is wrong but if you want to exercise your rights, you , or she, is going to have to go to the courts and ask them to settle custody and visitation.
of course she could but without a custody order, there is nothing the police should do. I say should because without a court order, they do not have the right to demand you return the child to her but in the interest of keeping the peace, they may "strongly suggest" it.
well we had plans and i wasnt able to take him back, and she kept treathing me she was going to call the cops and have me charged with kidnapping. Can she do that?
. Can I just keep him and let him live with me?
what you need to do is go to court. If you want custody, then request it. It is not impossible for a father to gain custody of their child. Most courts seem to tend to gear it towards the woman having custody but each case is an individual case and can go either way.
