I live in Tenneessee. My girlfriend has a son born when she was 19, 4 years ago. At the time she gave temporary custody of the child to her father for insurance purposes. Now he holds the childs custody over her head by saying he will take the child if she does something he does not like. She has a steady juob, but lives at home with her father. Wht are her rights her? Can he simply refuse to give custody back to her? She has no legal problems.
