Second opinion] MY 15 year old son has a baby with a 19 year old girl.. what are his rights to the baby. he wants visitation with his baby on a regular basis

Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Thanks for asking for me.

Your son, through you as his legal guardian, and you as the grandparent, may petition the court for custody/visitation of the child. At the present, and until you assist him in getting a court order of custody/visitation, he effectively has no rights. Only the court can grant an unmarried father custody rights of their child.

The court will grant him visitation rights though. All he must do is apply to the court for the custody order---again, through you as his Guardian ad Litem (because he is under 18).

You may reply to me again if you have additional questions, and I will be happy to continue to assist you.
