10 years ago girl ends up pregnant. She tells Bio dad, but at the time she is in a relationship with future husband. All 3 get together and decide future husband will act as child's full time father. Child is born, future husband puts his name on ...
Bio dad is technically not the dad under the law if now ex-husband is on the birth certificate unless ex husband has given up his right to be dad. If I were bio dad, I'd look for a copy of mom and ex-husband's divorce decree and any agreement they may have reached. Those are public record. If custody, visitation, and child support for the child is question were determined between mom and ex-husband, then, bio dad is not dad; and mom cannot ask for support from him.See question

In a contested divorce, the Judge can order that one spouse pay the attorney's fees of the other spouse. However, it is not automatic, but it is something the Judge in your case can consider based upon the particular circumstances of each case. Regardless, you should speak with an attorney in your area who practices family law on a regular basis to determine what your next steps should be.See question
My estranged husband moved from US to New Zealand 3 years ago. Since he's been there he changed his first and last name. When I file for divorce which name should I use? Current or the one on marriage certificate?

I am so sorry you are in this situation. It is very important that you answer the divorce complaint you were served with. Alabama is considered a "no fault" state. That means your husband does not have to prove that you were at fault in order to have the divorce granted by the court, just that you are incompatible. You need to contact a divorce attorney who can assist you with the divorce and an immigration attorney to assist you with your green card.See question
I am his biological father
Do you have a court order that determined the issues of custody, support, and visitation between you and your son's mother? If so, it would be helpful to know what the terms of that order are? If there are no prior orders and you are not on the birth certificate for your son, you will have to petition the court to establish paternity and custody.
However, if you have a prior order related to paternity and custody of your son, you may have to seek court intervention to obtain physical custody of your son. It sounds like his step-father may put up a fight. As such, I would suggest that you contact an attorney to assist you with this case.See question

You are still considered to be a minor child until you reach the age of 19. Since your grandfather has custody, he could attempt to force you to come home.See question

It would be helpful to have more facts related to your concern; however, in general, any person who believes a child is abused or neglected may file for custody of the child. You should contact an attorney in your area as soon as possible to further discuss your concerns.See question

Technically based on the facts as you have presented them in your post, as long as her former husband persists in the presumption that he is the father of this child, you are going to be left out in the cold from a legal standpoint. Even if you had a DNA test showing you are the father, it is up to her former husband to give up his right to be dad since he was married to her at the time the child was born. However, you should confer with an attorney to walk through the timeline and verify dates and documents.See question
