I was living with my boyfriend during the onset of COVID-19. We were quarantining together, but with the added stress of a pandemic and constantly being with each other, we ended up parting ways. We just couldn’t see it working out. I recently found out I was pregnant though, and I’m wondering where I start. My ex and I are on pretty good terms, but I’d like to make sure I cover all my bases and get a good custody arrangement in place. Can you possibly shed some light on this situation?
Perplexed & Pregnant
First of all, congratulations on the pregnancy! It can definitely be a tricky situation, but luckily it seems like you have a good relationship with your ex. You also already have the right idea when you say you would like to get an official custody agreement put into place. It seems like you would be able to do this amicably with the father of your child, and that should hopefully make the process a little less stressful for you.
The hardest part of this will likely be the wait. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enter a custody agreement until your child has been born and the father is added to the birth certificate. Then you can go ahead and file your custody application. In the meantime, you can certainly can consult with an attorney and get your “ducks in a row,” if you would like.
