How can you prove a mother is causing harm to her unborn child?
You didn't explain what this young mother-to-be was doing to harm her baby. Smoking, drugs, alcohol, trying to get rid of the baby. There isn't much you can do as she's the mother and has a right to her own body. When the baby is born and if she mistreats her newborn then you can call Children's Aid. == More Contributor Input== Unfortunately, in the US a woman cannot be legally forced to follow a healthy live style when she is pregnant. In the majority of US states when a baby is born addicted to drugs or AFS, the attending physicians/hospital are required to notify authorities.
Can the mother of an unmarried pregnant 17 year old in Colorado demand paternity test on unborn child?
If you are not married, then you are between a rock and a hard place if you cannot make an agreement with the mother of the child. Another view: You can file for a paternity test to prove the child is yours. Once it is proven, you can file for custody. However, you probably need to wait until after the child is born. Answer & Clarification In the United States, if you are the unmarried…
No one apart from the mother can obtain "custody" of a fetus. Custody battles must wait until the child has been born. You can file for paternity testing, although it would probably be best to wait until the child is born before doing that. If the tests prove the child is yours, you can then file for custody.

He cannot deprive the mother of her child without legal authority. He needs consent of the mother and the court with jurisdiction over the child. See related question link.

What rights does a father have if the mother of his unborn child leaves the state and denies him the right to care for his child and then comes back 6 years later suing for child support?
He has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support and also petition to sign the birth certificate. He could have done this 6 years ago when the child was born. The mother cannot deny him his parental rights. Now he will have to pay child support and he can even owe for 6 years back.
Can paternal grandparents get visitation from the biological mother if the mother won't the let the grandparents see the child?
If father takes child and his name is on birth certificate is there anything as a mother you could do to get child back?
Yes, in most cases. However, there will most likely be a presumption that Husband is the father of the unborn child. Of course you can challenge the presumption. Anyway, can file for divorce but will be financially responsible for the unborn child unless you can prove it's not yours. Also, if you want custody, divorcing your pregnant wife isn't a good start.
A DNA test is used in situations when paternity is contested. That is if someone gets a lady pregnant and claims it is not his baby, the mother can insist on a DNA test for purposes of child support. If the mother is the biological mother of the child, the test will be stupid since she had the baby to begin with
