I posted on here about a week ago with regards to my boyfriend walking out on me while 6 months pregnant and also we have an 11 month old. When he was talking about leaving he agreed to visitation every other weekend. He hasn't taken much of an interest in my pregnancy thus far.
A bit of background - he was unfaithful 2 yrs ago right before I got pregnant with our 11 month old. He has 2 failed marriages prior - both of whom he was unfaithful to so it wouldn't surprise me if there is someone else in the picture but I can't prove it.
He has a terrible debt to income ratio - basically he covers his bills and no more, He is obsessed with electronics and gadgets and sometimes puts them before bills. He has no extra money - until now I'm the one who has been financially taking care of our child - with some occasional help here and there from him. He has paid his half of the bills such as rent, electricity etc - but when it comes to clothes, food, diapers, formula etc - not much help from him. He is staying with a friend, I know he doesnt have money aside for even a damage deposit for his own apartment and suddenly out of nowhere he is now saying he wants 50/50 custody - I know his family have planted the seed in his head that if he does this he won't have to pay me child support. Despite his bad debt/bad credit he makes a good salary - he is just horrible with money, I would be in a better financial position to do it on my own getting child support - because at least i would have the stability of getting money from him, not just random money here and there.
What do you think the chances are of him getting 50/50 given the circumstances?!
