    Arrow Child Custody for Unwed Parents

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: MN
    My sons father served me witha motion to establish child custody today. Court date is set for Tuesday. The papers were served to me by his girlfriend and in them it states must be served 5 days prior to the court date. Is this grounds for dismissal?

    It doesn't really matter - even it was improper service, all you're doing is delaying the inevitable.

    Any reason you don't want him to establish paternity?

    We never drew up legal parental agreement. My son has come into my care with bleeding rash on his butt, complaining his arm hurt, an an ear infection. I pay all costs daycare, insurance. His father is claiming unemployment but working for his live in girlfriend. He also makes me drive over an hour to pick up my son but did not meet me to pick him up 2 weeks ago.

    Kids get diaper rash. Did you take him to the doctor? What happened?

    And really - nothing else there would constitute Dad being deemed unfit.

    So, what are you wanting to accomplish?

    He also has had 4 DUI's in the past 10 years. He never took him to the dr any of those times. I did. I know he drinks and drives. I am concerned for my sons safety

    How old is your son?

    Does your ex have a license? Do you currently have a visitation order? Without a court order saying so, you don't have to drive. Who moved?

    ...yet you picked him to be the father of your child. You've told the courts that you think he's a fit parent.

    But when YOU got your child back with a bloody rash, what did YOU do?
