I take your point. You're not wrong about Will's failure to take responsibility and Nick fulfilling the conditions of his parole.

The absurdity of recent parolee Nick, while cooking up schemes to get Will declared an unfit parent, flashing to Lucas saying he went to prison for Will...hey Nick, at least Will only ATTEMPTED murder. You were successful with yours.
I feel I've had this conversation before, but there is a big difference. Nick had a pill addiction, pled guilty to the crime, and served his sentence. He's also fulfilling the conditions of his parole. Will shot EJ, took no responsibility and, in fact, let his father go to jail for it. Yes, he was underage and yes that would be a factor, but it doesn't render the whole thing meaningless. I don't think it's absurd at all. Absolutely hypocritical and a bunch of levels, but not absurd or out of the realm of possibility.
I still consider it absurd. Especially given that he's doing this plotting and scheming while having no legal connection to Gabi or the baby yet, and is taking this meeting with an attorney without Gabi even present (she may not even have knowledge of it). The entire scenario is absurd and presumably intended to reflect how utterly controlling Nick is and how fixated he is on Gabi and the baby.
