'Y&R' Spoilers: Abby, Chance, and Devon's Shared Custody Not Working Out?

Young And The Restless spoilers predict Dominic Chancellor (Rainn and River Ware) will be the center of a brewing storm. Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) rocked Abby Newman's (Melissa Ordway) world when he requested shared custody of Dominic. 

Then, Chance Chancellor (Conner Floyd) piled on when he sided with Devon. Now, Hamilton will have weekly overnight visits with the baby. Although Abby agreed to Devon's request, she is conflicted.

On the other hand, Devon was elated. The surrogate dad was on cloud nine when Dominic had his first official overnight visit. Devon may be taking it a bit far by referring to himself as Daddy. 

Of course, he has the encouragement of Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan). The high-powered lawyer seems thrilled to see her boyfriend with the baby. Yet, Y&R spoilers for the week of January 31 to February 4 suggest there may be friction among Devon, Abby, and Chance over the new arrangement on Young And The Restless.

Y&R: Abby Struggles With the New Routine

Abby is unhappy with this arrangement. Devon was never meant to be Dominic's dad, just a sperm donor. It is what Devon agreed to. 

Abby made him the godfather and promised Devon a prominent role in the baby's life. So Devon's demand for shared custody may feel like betrayal. 

Additionally, Abby has to deal with Chance's post-traumatic stress disorder. So although everyone has Dominic's best interest at heart, there may be some bumps in the road.

Y&R spoilers for January 31 to February 4 tease that Abby will confide in Sharon Newman Rosales (Sharon Case). Sharon may offer guidance that will be helpful to Abby. 

Perhaps Sharon will ease Abby's mind about Devon's new role in her son's life. Or Sharon could give Abby resources to help Chance. Abby might end up with peace of mind about Dominic and Devon. However, that may change on Young And The Restless.

Will Devon Want More on Young and the Restless?

Devon was worried about Chance and his influence on Dominic. It did not help that Chance admitted to struggling with bonding with the baby. 

Devon had already connected to Dom and developed strong paternal feelings, so much so that he was willing to exploit Chance's mental illness in court. Abby gave in to Devon and avoided a court battle.

Yet, one night a week may not be enough for Devon. Also, Y&R spoilers suggest Chance will continue to struggle, which may be of concern. 

It would not be surprising if Devon wanted to amend the shared custody agreement. Hamilton might demand joint custody. Also, Devon may want to be recognized as Dominic's legal father. Abby would be devastated on The Young And The Restless.
