A: Unless he files for Paternity to become a Possessory Conservator, he has no rights to your child. Under the circumstances mentioned, I am certain, that you once retaining an attorney would be able to limit him to supervised visitation, which may take place in a safe house (if a paternity case is filed by him).
I also suggest filing a rape complaint against him.
