Young and the Restless spoilers reveal trouble ahead for Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway). Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) recently approached Abby and Chance Chancellor (Conner Floyd) about shared custody of baby Dominic Chancellor (Rainn and River Ware). Devon is not content to be a visitor in the baby's life. He wants the baby to have a place in his home as well as the Chancellor's mansion.
Naturally, this does not sit well with Dominic's parents. Chance believes Devon thinks he is not fit to be a father. Meanwhile, Abby thinks Devon is accusing her of abandoning her son when she went to Spain.
Although Devon tried to explain he has grown attached to the baby, Abby is anxious and hurt. Young and the Restless spoilers for the week of January 3 to 7 tease a fight between Abby and Devon.
When Abby started her journey to motherhood, Devon agreed to be just a donor. Yet, the journey did not turn out like anyone envisioned. Chance went undercover and Devon stepped up in his absence. Does Devon have a right to shared custody on Young and the Restless?
Young and the Restless: Does Devon Have Legal Rights to Dominic?
Abby was grateful to Devon and Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) for their role in bringing Dominic into the world. Abby could not have foreseen the events that would make Mariah and Devon so attached to her son.
Mariah was left to work through her issues. Meanwhile, Devon continued to bond with his biological son. This was made easier by Chance's absence.
Devon also has the advantage of living with a powerhouse attorney. Young and the Restless spoilers for the week of January 3 to 7 suggest that Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan) will find a loophole in the original baby contract.
Abby worked out the details of the contract while Chance was undercover. He was not around to sign any documents and that might give Devon the upper hand. Amanda knows Devon has a strong connection to Dominic and will fight for his rights. Yet, where will that leave Abby and Chance on Young and the Restless?
Abby and Devon Battle Over Dominic on Y&R?
Abby may learn that Devon may have legal rights to Dominic. Devon could use the fact that she left Dominic with him against her. Abby may also worry that Chance's struggles will work in Devon's favor. Perhaps she will offer some type of compromise.
However, Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Devon is seeking a legal and binding custody arrangement. Devon's stance is sure to cause conflict with Abby.
However, he is not likely to back down. Devon developed a strong bond with the baby that he can not deny. On the other hand, Abby may feel betrayed. After all, Devon knew he was meant to be a donor. Their friendship may never recover on The Young and the Restless.
