When your child’s father hasn’t always been in the picture, custody is a little bit more complicated. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because he hasn’t been involved doesn’t mean that he won’t be able to be involved later—chances are pretty good that he will.

Where your children are concerned, though, you can’t be too careful, and you’ll want to make sure that, if he’s going to be involved, he does so in a way that protects their best interests. It’s hard to suddenly involve a dad who hasn’t been an awesome father all along; in many cases, experts (like therapists) work with attorneys and guardians ad litem to help make sure that dad is reintegrated into the family in a healthy way.
