Can a felon with 4 DUI's get custody of my 7 month old?
We have never been married but were together for a short time. I have let him see our son plenty of times but only a few by himself because he has threatened to take off with our son. Now he is taking me too court to fight me for custody. He has 4 DUI's and is now a felon. If he gets caught driving again without a license he goes to jail. Please help.

What should I do about this bad situation?
I was driving a friends car, got in a wreck. I woke up and woke my friend up. My friend walked away from the accident. Nobody was seriously injured but stupid me panicked and left the scene too. We got back to the hotel muddy as could be. The police were already their because my other friend was there and it was her car. She didn't say anything to the cops. I Told everyone I was not driving and everyone went along with it nobody said anything. Even my friends insurance (I told them I was in the back seat and some other person was driving, that's why I flew forward and got scraches) so the police wouldn't have any evidence of me actually driving if they could use that against me. Even though they have suspicion I was driving because of the cuts I got on my face matched with the driver side and they put it in the police report. The case is still being investigated after about a month. My friend 3 weeks to a month after the crash today has told me she's going to press charges for a stolen car because her insurance wasn't going to pay for anything regardless of me driving. Bad situation gets worse and worse. Should I come clean right now? Should I stick to my story? Get a lawyer?
