Q. What if a baby dady signs his rights over to the mother. And the mother wants pictures off from his facebook about the child. And the father isnt willing to do so. Is that ok by law? That he can leave them on. Even if the mother doesnt want him to put pictures on anything
Dear Juneau Resident,
The biological father isn't doing anything illegal under criminal law as long as he legally acquired the pictures. If he broke into the mother's house and stole the pictures the pictures would then be evidence.
A civil attorney can probably tell you if the mother can somehow control all pictures of the child or if the father is required to keep his status a secret under a civil agreement. Common sense would seem to say that biological father is a permanent and discloseable relationship even if custody rights are waived but a civil lawyer would know more about that area of law.
