Adopting my girlfriends baby
Asked Feb 21, 2013, 02:38 PM
I'm 20 and my girlfriend is 19,she was pregnant when we started dating, now the child is 5 months old and the father still hasn't acknowladged or even asked about the child. He's not on a single piece of paper work or on the birth cirtificate and has never given so much as a penny to the child, yet his mom wants to be a grandmother and is threatening to take us to court if we don't allow her time with the baby. I have full intentions on adopting him as I love him unconditionally. She says she can get a court ordered paternity test. Is this true? And if so,what are his rights, and what are mine? p.s, I've been the only father to this child I don't think it should matter if he's my blood or not.
