A: I'm not aware of any forms, but a form would not help you anyway. If you are trying to get joint custody in a paternity case, you are going to need an attorney. There are many excellent attorneys in your part of the state. Contact a few and hire the one you feel comfortable working with on your case.

Best of luck!

A: I agree with Mr. Louden. If you are the legal father already, then contact an attorney for the paternity action to establish custody/visitation. Contact a family law attorney for more guidance in your specific case.
