My stepdaughter has a 2 year old son whom the father is in the military over iun Iraq, he has only seen his son 3 times in his life not by choice but because he has been deployed, he pays child support and all in all is the best dad he can be being away........Problem,,,,,,,His mother the grandmother..........she has become a large problem, she is a compulsive liar and is Drama queen in the dictionary has started alot of problems because of this my daughter chooses to not let her see the baby, wish I could explain more she really is a nightmare. There is no custody for the child they were never married, what can she do to protect her son? She will eventually allow the child to see her only when she is (My daughter) is present, they can not even talk to each other and her and I have the same problem (other grandma) What can my daughter do? She (Other Grandma) says they will take her to court and get visitation rights, all and all my daughter does not have any income except 300 she recieves for child support she she can not afford a lawyer what scares her the most is that she does not have custody and what if dad comes and takes him and does not bring him back, he has that right,,,,,,,,,,we need some advice please
Crap, then depending on what state you live in she could have grandparent rights. To be safe I would start letting her come over and visit the baby. First I would google your state and grandparent rights to see if you even have to worry about it. I'm sure neither of you would want her to be able to take the baby anywhere so maybe supervised visits with both you and mom would be better.

i know in some states they offer legal assistance. since she has no income she could qualify. tell her to look online and see if that's a possibility in the state you all live in. good luck

What I don't understand is the custody thing. How does your daughter not have custody?

Oh okay, sorry, I was confused on that one. Is his name even on the birth certificate? It probaly differs from state to state but where I live if the father didn't sign the birth certificate then his parents wouldn't have any rights to the child whatsoever.
