Legal Question

Asked on: 8/06/10, 8:35 am

I am a single mom with one son. The dad and I are not married and he is not on child support. My son is ten months old and has not received any help from his father except for a few baby items. I have him under my insurance and pay for all his expenses. I would like to know what I can do in case I happen to die. I would want him to have my parents as his legal guardians. Since my child and I both live with them. Or does he automatically go to my his father? Is there any legal actions I can take such as a will? Or does the court legally just have the father step in and take over custody?
