I had my son in February 2015 his father was in jail and is not on his brith certificate. When his father came home from jail 6 months after my sons brith I let him come and stay with us, he is drinking and occasionally doing drugs as well as cheating on me. He said he was going to change but he is not he right back to his old habits I want to keep my son away from that kind of behavior and I want him to have a good child hood but I know when I ask his father to leave that he is still going to want to see and be able to spend time with his son and I want to make sure that my son is not going to get hurt by his fathers drinking and occasional drug use. His father doesn't think twice about drinking and driving. Should I file for sole custody? Or would that automatically give him joint custody until I can prove that he should not have custody of my son?
