Child support has ever been given. My question is if my sons father goes to court, can he get full custody? Also what steps should I be taking in a situation like this for precautions? I’m not even sure who technically has custody as of right now. Him or I.

My hubby showed for the TPR hearing, I did Not. Apparently, our rights WERE terminated. He didn't sign any paperwork, and, as I stated, I did not even go. Can our babies be adopted out without even our Knowledge? Also, can we adopt our own kids?!
