A: your husband can apply for some role--adoptive parent or whatever. Your first order is to get a custody attorney who practices in your county.

A: Hello! If you have custody now, then the father will have to ask the court to modify the order. He has an uphill battle after his absence, but if this guy really does pursue custody, please go and talk to a lawyer. Many of us provide free consultations and would be happy to go over the situation and advise the best course of action. Good luck to you!
