Is your boyfriend on the birthcert? Has he been actively involved with the baby? The grandparent can't do anything immediately besides get a lawyer. If any custody has been established then she has to prove that your boyfriend is unfit. If there is not established custody she still has to get the parents consent to give her guardianship or custody. It is not that easy just because she wants the child. It is in your best interest to try and work out an agreement with her about visitation so that she can get to see the child and you may be able to work some thing out where you end up helping each other care for the baby. more...

Another good point was brought up. No you do nto want to put the grandparents on the custody paperwork but you DO want to cooperate with them to allow them to see the baby. You may end up like I said before having a good relationship with them if they see the baby is being taken care of and that you will allow them access they wont be so afraid they are going to lose contact and back off a bit.
