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.
If she wants to.
The mother already has sole custody. The father has not rights. see link
Father would have to consent to the adoption. Definitely worth petitioning for custody if you feel that you and your family can care for the child.
Until the baby is born he has no rights. His paternal rights starts after birth. If he then wants custody and you don't he has to go to court.
If you live in the US... The father's parents have no rights to custody at all. The father has the right to petition for custody, but he won't be given sole custody unless he can prove the mother unfit. He might, however, be given joint custody.
babybecause you are American the baby will have dual citizenship, you shouldn't have a problem unless the father wants custody or visitation rights etc, while he is in Canada
Once you are pregnant your options are as follows:have the baby and become a full time parenthave the baby and give full custody to the fatherhave the baby and share custody and responsibility with the father
biological mother has sole automatic custody of baby
if you can prove she is an unfit mother and you have the income to support a child but even then if she is under 18 i think her parents could get custody
It's going to be a catch 22, you have a right to the child, but you could be charged with stat. rape, best to seek a lawyer.
I wouldn't think so. You are the mother therefore you all ready have custody of your baby. Your coworker is wrong. Unless you have another person who wants the baby as the natural mother your rights are established. Custody issues come from a spouse or partner that wants the baby.
As unfortunate as this may be it is possible for the father to get custody of the baby, but not full custody unless the mother is proven unfit. Because reguardless of what happened between the couple the father is still the father of the child, and the father still has his rights as a father to be a part of his child's life.
If the parents of the baby are of adult age, they do. If the parents of the baby are younger than the age of adulthood, the courts will decide who gets custody of the baby. The welfare of the baby must be taken into consideration and if the parents can not provide for it, then a reliable means of support must be found.
Only if there is a court order.
Not legally. Father can be charged with kidnapping.
if there's a custody agreement its between the parents, however if there is no "joint custody" agreement..... it's ALL UP TO CUSTODIAL PARENT
* If you have joint custody then yes, he does need your permission to take your baby out of the UK. If he has sole custody he can take the baby anywhere he wants.
Contact a adoptive agency and they will help you finding a family etc. Also make sure the child's father is OK with it or if he wants custody.
Married or not. If not married, No. If married, father is assumed by law to be the father of the baby.
Well you would have to give more information than that.... The mom would have custody, since she obviously has the baby. If the father wants the baby and not the mother then he would have to go to court and get it that way. I dout the father would get the baby since court cases usually go towards the mother. Unless she is doing stuff that could or did negatively impact the baby. (like drugs, or drinking while pregnant, stuff like that)
Not sure what your question is. To have the baby or not is your decisison and he has the choice to part take in the child's life or not. Either way he still has to pay child support. The courts wont just give him custody of a baby just because he wants to. Most courts give custody to the mother, especially when the child is a baby.
It depends on who has custody of the child. If you have complete custody then you do not legally have to change it.
Yes the bilogical father will get the child .
No she cant be the mother or have custody for a child she dont even own
If the mom has custody. If they have to split custody then no she doesn't.
