This one will have to go through a court of law and your parents (if they want custody of this baby) will have to fight your boyfriend for these rights. If the court sees that your boyfriend is too young, not dependable to raise this child then yes, your parents could very well end up with the custody of your baby. It's time you sat down and talked to your parents to be sure they want this great responsibility. If this young man is a nice guy then I would let him at least have some time with his child.

Depending upon circumstances the court could award temporary custody to the birth mother's parents. However, the biological father and his parents would also be granted the opportunity to petition for custodial rights. It is generally accepted that an unmarried mother has automatic and full custodial rights of the child until those rights are challenged. Regardless of who retained custody, the biological father would be granted visitation rights if he so wished. The mother or the mother's parents would not have the option to withold such privileges.
