Q: My husband and I have had his son for 2 years can the bio mom come take him ?
Does she have the right to come from az to nv to take him from us when She's had zero contact with him
A: As the biological mother she will have rights. the extent of those rights will depend on the facts of the case.
Janice Jacovino agrees with this answer
A: I agree with the answer above and have an additional comment. To legally determine what rights the biological mom has to the child the child's father can file a custody case or can file to terminate her rights. Without a Court order the rights of each parent are based on the parents individual facts and the current situations.
