It's not exactly clear from your facts if there are three children that you share with your ex, however, I would suggest you not treat your youngest child as any different than the other two in your efforts for seeking a change of custody. In the absence of a judicial determination otherwise (which would have included some genetic testing from the other putative father), the legal status of your youngest child is that she is still yours. Your case is sufficiently complex such that I would suggest at least consulting an attorney to see if you should retain one to insure you get the results you want.
