i am in new york state. i have a daughter 11months old, i am going to court for custody because her father said he was going to take her away. i donot work i stay home with my daughter i was in college before but since i had my daughter i have not gone back. my court date is april 13 and i am planning to return to school in august.my child's father quite is job when he recieved the summons.he refuse to pay child support and he does not take care of her. since the day my daughter was born i only recieved 3 packs of diaper and 5 outfits from him. his family hates my daugter and is mother always say bad things about her, my child father lives in the same house as is family and i fear for her saftey if she goes there. i guess what i am asking is will a juge give him custody in a case like this.
