My roommate has a 9 month old son. He is not listed as the father on the birth certificate, but the mother has signed an acknowledgement of paternity. She also signed a statement granting him temporary custody of the child which included taking the child out of state. The mother lives in New York and he lives in Virginia He has had physical custody of the child for the last 3 weeks but she has since threatened to file kidnapping charges against him. Does she have any grounds for filing any legal actions against him? There is no formal custody agreement filed through the court system.
The father and the child are currently residing in Virginia. The child's home state is New York.
