Iím 18 years old and I am about 16 weeks pregnant. Me and the babyís father are not together right now, but are trying to work things out. He threatened to take the baby away from me saying Iím not going to be a good mom just because I said I was going to clean my room later.
My question is: can he leagally come and just take the baby from me?

No he can't. First off you are not married to him, second off, if you don't put his name on the birth certificate, then he would need to sue for his parental rights, have a paternity test and all of the above. You need to speak to an attorney that specializes in Family law, and get your parents support and help. Get away from this guy, and start to realize if he is threatening this before this child is even born, then he will continue to harrass you and try to scare you once the child is here.

The courts do not see this pregnancy as a child until it is born and has taken its first breath. You are on your own throughout this pregnancy... he does not have to pay you any child support or help out with any kind of medical bills until after the child is here.
