Probably - see CA Family Law Code

(a) Custody should be granted in the following order ofpreference according to the best interest of the child (1) To both parents jointly the court shall consider, among otherfactors, which parent is more likely to allow the child frequent andcontinuing contact with the noncustodial parent, (2) If to neither parent, to the person or persons in whose homethe child has been living in a wholesome and stable environment. (3) To any other person or persons deemed by the court to besuitable and able to provide adequate and proper care and guidancefor the child. (b) choose a parenting plan that is in the bestinterest of the child.

The law presumes that an unmarried woman has sole custody of a child born out of wedlock until/unless a court rules otherwise.

The child goes to foster care of relatives until a decision of the court. In a related case, the child of an Ohio woman in jail for getting pregnant by a 13 year old boy, was placed in the care of her parents and the parents of the boy was ordered to pay child support.

If she has custody of the child, of course she can.

No, this is illegal. Both parents must adhere to the custody schedule. If the father is entitled to visitation or partial custody, the mother cannot legally defy the schedule and refuse to let him see the child.

Potentially yes, especially if the woman is living with or receiving documented financial assistance from her parents. The courts consider all sources of income as well as the child's living environment when making the decision regarding who is awarded custody.

Does she not have custody and seeks to gain it? Or does she want to ensure ongoing custody of a child in her care? Generally speaking, a birth mother has the better chance of achieving or retaining custody than the father, but various factors will be taken into consideration if the courts are involved. Also under consideration will be the suitability of either parent to have or obtain custody. Ultimately the courts should consider the welfare and comfort of the child, and so should the parents.

no, she has sole custody, and the father has nothing. see link below

yes...if the father has custody of the child or children then a woman has to pay child support just like a man.

Her parents can usually take the child in or grandparents. Child Welfare is usually not far away and has the right to decide what is a fitting home for the child. If the mother's parents or grandparents are not fit to raise the child then the child could become a ward of the courts, but, if the father of the child comes forward and can prove he has the finances to raise that child in a good environment (even his parents helping out or grandparents) then he could raise this child. When the young woman gets out of the Juvenile facility she will have rights to see her child, but it is up to the courts to decide if she is a fit parent. If not, then the father can have sole custody. Marcy

There is no actual "custody" before a baby is born. It's not necessary- it is inside of and part of its mother's body. Generally, custody issues cannot be raised until after the child is born.However, if a pregnant woman is found to be doing something that is endangering her fetus (drug abuse for example), the state can place her in protective custody until the child is born.There is no actual "custody" before a baby is born.

The unmarried mother has sole custody and control in every state at the time of the birth until the father establishes his paternity in the family court.

YES, a woman can file for child support and not address custody in the courts, but a man can not request visitation time without the subject of child support being addressed. All single mother have sole custody by default, in 49 states.

It would be highly unusual for a judge to grant sole custody in such a situation. She would have to be deemed an unfit parent by the court or consent to the custody arrangement.

A woman can lose custody for any number of reasons. Most (all?) states only consider the best interests of the child when considering which parent should receive custody.

The father's step sister has no legal rights in this case. A mother automatically has custody of her child.The father's step sister has no legal rights in this case.

The parents of the child are liable for support - not their spouses.

No, a man does not always get custody. If one of the people in a marriage has an affair, it is usually the person not having an affair that gets custody of the child or children.For example, if the husband is having an affair, and the wife wants a divorce, the woman (wife) would get the custody of the child or children, and not the man (husband). This is the same vice versa, too.

If you're in the US, living with someone gives you no legal rights at all. The mother of the child would automatically receive custody, unless she's unfit, in which case custody would be awarded to a legal family member (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc). But even if you were married your rights would be limited, because in most states step-parents would have no right to custody in this situation unless no other family member wanted custody. You need to talk to a local attorney for advice.

None, even if you lived in the same country. Only the court can grant you rights, in this case, a Canadian court, but an American court will handle child support.see links

No. The law presumes that an unmarried woman has the legal right to take whatever action she chooses concerning a pregnancy. If she decides to have and keep the child she retains sole custody to that child until the father's parentage is established. At that time such issues as custody, visitation, child support, etc. can be addressed by the court. The parentage has been established, but now she is seeking Child Support, is there no action you can take against her for the deception?

Both parents have to be Rh- to produce a Rh- child.
