Can my son and I fight to see my grandchild?

Question:

Can my son and I fight to see my grandchild?

My son and I are illegally here and he have a little girl with a us who is a citizen? My son’s ex-wife won’t let us see the baby. She has been running, because every time we found out about her location she moves. My grand daugther lives in a dirty house. My gand daugther’s mom won’t let me and my son get close to her and she says that she is going to call the police or immigration. She is using my son’s paassed problems he did illegal here against him just to scare us and we don’t know what to do.

Answer:

Your son needs to File a Petition to Establish Paternity, Custody, Parenting Time and Child Support.  He has as much right to his child as she does.  The court has no interest in his immigration status.  Your son has a right to be a dad and have his child on a regular basis.

I suggest that you and he obtain a free consultation from an experienced family law attorney.

Good luck!
