Getting married sometimes just makes a bad decision a disaster...it just might not be the best thing for anyone in the long run.

I would contact Ken Davies - he's a lawyer that fights for his clients.

I agree with the others who said getting a lawyer to contact the other grandparents may cause an irreperable breach. Is your son listed on the birth certificate as father?

Without knowing why you are so concerned about the other GPs, it's hard to give you any other advice than to say make sure your son is the acknowledged father, legally. So sorry this happy event should be clouded.

Thank you lovesMountains for providing the name of a family attorney - if anyone else has a recommendation for a family law attorney, I'd appreciate it.

As for all the other suggestions, comments and/or advice - thank you, but regrettably, I am very sure this is a path we need to become more knowledgeable about.

I agree. You need to consult an attorney to find out exactly what the laws are as to your son's future involvement as a father to this child. Things can change . . . and altho we certainly would hope the situation would never become combatant, we all know of situations that involve custody disputes . . . so it does happen.

Just FYI - even tho your son and his fiancee are not married, it really does not change his legal standing as a parent . . . however, the whole situation w/ joint or sole custody . . . these are things that can get very contorted/combative down the road. Grandparents don't really have "rights" in this state, but can petition the court for certain rights.

I agree w/ you - the smart thing is to consult an attorney and find out you son's rights, duties and obligations under the law. You don't have to let anyone know you even consulted an attorney!!! After all. . . you may find there is nothing that needs to be addressed legally at this point to protect your son's rights as a parent.
