My question involves a child custody case from the State of: California
My son was born 5 months ago, his father moved out of state when I was 6 months pregnant and was not present during the birth and has never seen the baby. I was told that paternity was established recently and he's threatening to ask for custody. He was physically and emotionally abusive for the majority of my pregnancy. Can he file for custody from his home state of Rhode Island? And does he really have a case if he's never tried to be involved? He's only doing this to upset me because I won't continue the relationship.
