My question involves a child custody case from the State of: IL
Hello, and thank you in advance for the help.
I am a mother to be with some questions about child custody, visitation, etc.
I became pregnant out of state, and due to some pretty serious issues/broke it off with the father, and moved back to my home state of IL. I never established residency anywhere else.
I have not been in contact with the biological father for months now.
Unfortunately, I am also legally married to another man, so I know there will be the whole issue of paternity and whatnot to deal with first, but my question is:
If and when paternity is established for the biological father, and he requests any kind of parenting time or rights, what could I expect? He is currently over 1,000 miles away from me. Obviously my baby will be an infant. What kind of arrangements are typically made in this situation?
Also, if it can be proven in court, would mental illness, heavy alcohol use, and threats from the father change that outcome?
