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.

Im being charged with owi 3rd but I feel I have a very good case against it. Would very much appreciate legal advice.
I live & was charged with owi 3rd in Iowa. There is NO evidence against me except the cops testimony at trial. My current lawyer got a motion to suppress the video at the police station & there was no video unit installed on the cop car. I contested my license revocation via a phone trial with the DOT & the judge ruled in my favor stating that I did request a lawyer & the cop didnt give me one as he was sposed to per 804.20. On the video I am recorded telling him verbally several times that I WOULD take the data master test but he wanted me to sign a paper that I didnt understand which is why I asked for a lawyer. He got mad & took the paper back from me & I never did the data master as a result. Theres more important aspects to the case but space is very limited here.
