Thanks for the responses.
I did sign the birth certificate, so paternity is confirmed.
I live 5 minutes away from mom, closer to his school then she is.
Filling out the paperwork it only has if you want Sole Custody or Joint Legal only. It doesn't give the option for Joint Legal and Physical. In you all's opinion, what are my chances of getting Sole custody and her getting visitation?
She keeps me from seeing the child when she gets mad, thus his relatives on my side of the family can't see him either. I read somewhere that judges look at which parent will ensure the child maintains a good relationship with both parents and relatives.
She also doesn't provide the academic support he needs. She does not help with his homework like she should. I would pick him up in the mornings for school and his homework would be wrong. He almost failed this past year. I had to sneak to his bus stop to see him and help him with his homework because she wouldn't let me see him. I would be up at the school talking to his teachers to keep up with with his grades, etc., to make sure he fulfilling all requirements.
I would be happy with Shared legal and physical but, like I said, it doesn't give that option.
