I currently live with my 2 boys father we are not married and he is on birth certificate, he is going to be moving out, what happens if I let him have children for a day and he does not bring them home....at this point I do not trust him, I'm scared he will try to take them. Thank You

Since you don't have a child custody court order (I assume), he could legally do this. This usually happens because the father is afraid of getting hit for child support. You need to consult an experienced family law attorney to prepare a custody and support agreement which will also provide for visitation privileges for the father. If he's not willing to agree to that, you better get a court order. If expenses are an issue, check with your county bar association about pro bono (free) and reduced fee attorneys for whom you may qualify.
