is getting physical custody the answer?

Small background-- I am currently pregnant with my ex boyfriends child. So far he doesn't show interest in being in his child's life and has threatened that if I take him to court for custody or child support I 'won't get a penny out of him' I am trying to work my options out sooner then later and filing for physical custody seems to be the answer? I have the common fear of him taking the child without my consent for some reason. I'd love to know your pros/cons and personal experience with anything similar! Thanks.

What I've read so far is that I can get child support while having full physical custody but most allow visitation (which I'm OK with of course)

Well you do need to get custody sorted out ASAP. If he doesn't want to pay child support then he will have to give up his parental rights altogether. He will never have the option file later for visitation etc.

You would be better off asking a lawyer who knows the laws where you are.
