Well, I don't know about the specific laws of Kentucky, but I do know that regardless of your age difference with him, it is legally considered a separate issue than visitation with your baby. So the short answer is this: He has visitation rights unless otherwise ordered in a court of law because he is a danger to the baby.


The age of consent in Kentucky is 16 so if the girl was 16 when she got pregnant, the state won't be charging the father with anything unless the 20-yr-old is "a person in a position of authority or position of special trust" such as a teacher, coach, religious leader, or employer.

If the girl was under 16 when she got pregnant - Kentucky Revised Statues §510.020 deems a person unable to consent if he or she is less than 16 years old and the 20-yr-old father can be in big trouble unless he was not yet 20 when she got pregnant. Whether he wants to be part of the baby's life or not will likely not factor into any decisions about prosecution.
