In cases where the biological parents are not married the law presumes that the mother has sole custody rights. The father would have to establish paternity to the satisfaction of the court before custody, visitation or child support issues could be addressed. In cases that pertain to a child born in a marriage both parents are assumed to have equal rights until the court rules otherwise. If one parent filed for sole custody the other would be notified and would have the legal right to contest the action.
