A: This is a much more complex question than can be answered in this format. The part of the answer is that he would have to file for paternity in order to invoke any parental rights. Considering the fact that he is guilty of a crime based on your age difference and the sexual nature of your relationship, I would be hard pressed to think a judge would rule in favor of him getting full custody. As for your guardian, that is another matter all together. You should reach directly out to an attorney to see what you rights are under the circumstances, because they are vey fact dependent.
