My question involves a child custody case from the State of: New York
If two seventeen olds have a child and the mother puts the fathers name on the birth certificate, can he walk away with the baby?
They are still dating, not married and in love. I fear he would use the child has a pawn if he gets angry. Just can't find answers or talk my daughter out of putting him on the birth certificate before paternity is established and custody and visitation done.
