My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Maryland
Hello, I am currently a mother of an 8 year old daughter with a father that I am no longer with. Recently I became pregnant with another man and at the time I found out I was drinking and taking pain killers to often so I decided to go to rehab for 2 weeks to clean it out of my system so the baby wasn't impacted. I currently have 50/50 custody with the dad. The dad is now threatening to take me to court over custody of my current daughter because I left (he knew I was going). Can he do this because I was gone for 2 weeks to better myself?
To add to the problem, the father of my unborn child lives in Florida and is currently in jail for probation violation. He left the state without consent. He previously had a felony drug charge a few years ago. When he is out of jail he plans to move to maryland to help raise the baby but I am worried my Ex will try to take my daughter from me. If my new boyfriend/childs father is completely drug free and clean would my Ex be able to do that?
