Have you got a lawyer? Your lawyer should be able to answer all your questions. If you don't have one, you need to get one.

I'm not sure about advice, but I can give you hope. I also took my children's father to court for full custody. He was lazy and didn't care too much for them, and I won by default because he didn't even show up. I'm in California and the court system may be different from NY, but I don't believe any court would take a child away from it's mother without a good show of cause. The father would have to prove you are unfit as a mother to gain full custody. And I'm pretty certain a court wouldn't grant him full custody if his plans are to remove the child from our country, where that child is now a citizen. You need to voice your fears to the court that you believe he is going to take the child out of the country. Unfortunately, he will be entitled for visitation, but if you tell the court he is planning on taking the child out of the country, they will probably make it supervised visits. I hope I was helpful and good luck on Wednesday.
