I'm not a lawyer or have EVER dealt with divorce let alone child custody. I was under the impression that EVEN if one parent has full custody it didn't mean the other automatically losses parental rights. So in order for that child to be adopted BOTH parents parental rights need to be terminated. BECAUSE (and this is according to my lay person's understanding) the parent who lost custody is still paying or is required to pay child support while a person's whose parental rights have been terminated does not.

PLUS I highly doubt a judge will remove a nursling infant from his mother unless she has some serious drug issues. I think he is just trying to scare you in to not filing for child support. Regardless I take threats like these very seriously so he's forewarned you so get your ducks in a row as well as finding out if you can record what he is saying. ITS DESPICABLE!
