Homer P Jordan IV's answer
Going off of the situation you have described, he has no legal rights to the child. You weren't married and he has not legitimized her, and now you found out he's biologically not the father. Having no legal rights to her, it's unlikely they would place her with him. You may want to consult with an attorney who can review the facts of the case in detail and present you with the options. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com

Are you working with an attorney? If not, you should consult with an attorney who can review the facts of your case in detail and help you plan the proper course of action. There has to be a compelling reason why they removed the child and that they are having you work through a plan to gain her custody back. Without knowing that information in detail it's difficult to provide you with direction on how to handle the situation. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
