Question: My Son is the Father to a soon to be Baby Girl due 6/26/11. The Mother of the unborn child has become abusive and Son no longer wants to Marry her. She states that she is going to leave the state and put the child up for adoption if he doesn't Marry her. What are his rights?

Answer: For issues concerning child custody please review the general information under the article titled “Child Custody” on this website.  There is information available on paternity of a child in the Arizona Revised Statutes under Title 25 Material and Domestic Relations.  Specifically see, Chapter Six, titled Maternity and Paternity Proceedings. Family law matters can be very complicated. Please see our website for legal aid options that may be available, if detailed legal advice is needed.
