Can seeking child support trigger a custody battle?
Unintended consequences of seeking child support? My 4-month old daughter's father signed the birth certificate and deposits money in my account every 2 weeks. We were never married and he has seen our daughter 4 times since she was born. He has 2 grown up kids from his firt marriage. I just found out he's married (not sure if this is second or third). I believe his current wife is not aware that he has a daughter with me. What are the possible consequences if I seek child support? I don't want him to have custody of my daughter because I hardly know him (he deceived me) and I now consider him a stranger.
