A: You should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to see about establishing custody and visitation. Under the circumstances, you could likely get custody of both of the children, at least until the mother can get a stable home. Emergency temporary custody may also be a consideration depending on her circumstances.
A: This sounds like you are the father. You need an attorney to seek custody for you
