Normally, you can look up cases online, however, if this is a paternity case it would not show up. If it is a divorce, then it would. If your step son is seeking official parenting time, then yes, the living arrangement would help your case. That said, there are many variables involved.
If a father has been ordered to pay child support, that would indicate that he was either married to the mother or adjudicated the father. Presumption of paternity would no longer apply unless another man is challenging the paternity.

Usually, until a court order is established either parent is entitled to possession of the child. Some states give the mother possession depending on the age of the child. Seek the advice of a family law attorney as soon as possible.
Minnesota law does not define emancipation or give a procedure to follow to be emancipated. So, the process and grounds for emancipation are not all that clear, and may be different from county to county. Much of it depends on child's parents.
