Hi, this is my first post! I am only 17 and I am 18 weeks pregnant and no longer with the dad. I don't know much about getting full custody of my baby but I do know that if he doesn't sign the paternity papers he wont be considered the legal father is there any way I can make sure he doesn't get any type of custody besides visitation rights due to the fact that he abuses drugs? I really need help, I don't think it would be good for my baby to be around that even though he is the biological father. I dont know what to do.

Until he's 18, in certain states, he doesn't even have paternal rights yet. If he is over 18 then go to court. Show them your proof. They will most likely settle on visitation. Maybe even only supervised visitation depending on how much proof you have and how bad he abuses the drugs.. Good luck.
