hi

 

that should never have happened. you should consult with a local attorney who can evaluate the matter for you regarding a possible lawsuit against the hospital.

 

if you are the custodial parent, he is not on the birth cert, it was not an emergency and there is no joint legal custody then you are the only one who should have been told anything and the only one who would be legally able to give the go ahead.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
