I just had a baby boy 2 months ago.

Well I'm 15 & my boyfriend is 20. I'm turning 16 & he's turning 21 in a couple of months. I just had a baby boy 2 months ago and the situation between my mother and my boyfriend is crazy. My mom strongly dislikes my boyfriend. But when I was pregnant my mother would act oddly nice. Now it's hell when my boyfriend wants to see his son.(Oh, and my boyfriend and I have been together for almost 2 years). Anyway, I want to know is there ANY possible way for him to get partial custody of his son. I mean this drama is stressing me out and making me lose my sanity. Every time my boyfriend comes there's an argument. And my mother always seems to start them. When I tell you she is crazy... she is crazy. Sometimes I wonder if she likes to argue... Because even with me she'll give me an attitude for no apparent reason. Also, when could I get my rights as a parent? Right now (since I'm a minor) My mother has legal custody of my child. But, I am saving money to move out SOON. I mean I'm going to court and moving out by 16/17 If it is approved. I don't want her having legal custody of my child. This is MY child and it seems like I pushed him out for her.

Editor's Comment

If your mother is the legal guardian for your baby, then any change to this would have to go through the courts and would probably involve a social worker assessment. I would suggest that you get in touch with social services if you are unhappy with your present arrangement.
