Legally, can her parents take her baby away if her husband let them? 2 Answers as of September 15, 2016

My best friend is eighteen. She is two months pregnant right now, and yesterday her father informed her that they (he and his wife), will be taking the baby when it is born. They claim that she is too young to raise a baby, but she is eighteen, and she is married to the baby's father (due to an arranged marriage). That's the other problem. Her husband is just fine with letting his in-laws take the baby.

As a strictly legal matter, her parents cannot take away an adult child's child just because they think it's the right thing to do. However, they could try to win custody of the child through a court proceeding. The outcome depends upon many individual facts. She would benefit from consulting an experienced family lawyer. She will probably want to keep her baby and drop her husband.
