You need a Family Law attorney. If you can't afford one, contact Legal Aide or a Father's Rights advocate. He will not get custody at the hospital, unless she names him the father or he can prove it. If she is deemed unfit, and that is what will have to happen if your BF wants to be the sole guardian, the baby will go to a foster home or into the care of a family member until the paternity is proven.

Yes he can go to court. Is the baby here yet? If yes, then petition for a DNA test. the court will force her to produce the child for a specimen. Once paternity is proven, you BF should expect to pay to support the baby and have visitation. She does not get to decide unilaterally if the father can see his child. If he is not the father, then you both wash your hands of her and be out of her life. If the bay has not arrived, he can still petition for a DNA test to be done at the delivery. If he is the father, after proven by DNA, get him to have his name documented on the BC.
