Restraining Orders

Can a stepfather file a restraining order against his 17-year-old daughter's boyfriend if the biological mother does not agree to it?

Answer

Not if it concerns the minor female, as stepparents have no legal authority over stepchildren.

The exception for a non biological parent to have legal rights to a child is if that person had legally adopted the child.

The stepfather might be able to get a no contact order against the person for himself and/or keep the person from entering his property depending upon how the ownership of the property is established.
