Wait until the end of your sixth month of pregnancy before confering with counsel. It simply is to premature right now.

If he wants to fight for custody, he will have to pursue it in the Courts. Once you get served with the paperwork, assuming he ever files it, you would have 20 days to respond.

The above information is provided without any consideration/payment having been received, and without full knowledge of all of the facts.

An internet inquiry is no substitution for an in-office consultation with an attorney.

If your situation falls within the Greater Tampa Bay area, when you are a little further along in your pregnancy, I would be happy to schedule you for a no obligation half hour office consultation. The main office is in Dunedin, with a satellite location in Tampa.

Feel free to Google me.

Good Luck, Elliot Goldstein
