Yes, he should certainly be doing this with an attorney. Any settlement of outcome may be a marital asset, so that you would share. If you are asking this sort of question, perhaps you should be talking with an attorney to protect your own rights.
You do not have to let him take your daughter as you describe. He has no legal rights as the father until he has been named as the father in court.
