Can an unmarried father get primary physical custody of the child if the mother hid the child from her family and said he was put up for adoption and also took him to a hotel to meet with a guy?
== Answer == You will have to see a lawyer on this one and get the proof that everything you stated is true or it's classified as "heresay evidence" (her word against yours.) If she can be declared an unfit mother and you have a fairly decent job, live in a good area of a town or city, can prove you are reliable and responsible you have a good chance of winning. Good luck Marcy
yes they should be able to

If an unmarried father wants nothing to do with his child does the unmarried mother automatically get full custody of the child?
Answer . \nIf the father's name is on the birth certificate, the mother must petition the court for full custody rights. If the petition is granted, it still will not relie…ve the father of his financial obligations. Even if the father's name is not on the birth certificate, it will not prevent him from taking action for cutodial rights in the future. If he has not shown an inclination to be involved in the child's life, or supported the child financially, the court would give little creedence to such a request.
If an unmarried woman gives a child up for adoption does the father have first claim on the child and if he does take custody is the mother obligated to pay child support?
Answer . Yes, the father does get first claim, in order for the child to be adopted by someone else, he needs to give up his legal rights as a father to the child. If you …fully give up the child for adoption, to him, then he can not make you pay child support, but if he takes custody only, then yes you may be instructed to pay child support. He does not need to adopt to get custody. But he may stop you from giving up your child, by claiming he supports the child financially, and does not wish to terminate parental rights, but also does not wish look after the child himself.Get a lawyer and discuss this with him.

If there is no court order for custody and the father has physical custody how can the mother get physical custody of the child?
In the United States both parents have equal rights to thechild if they are married and not divorced and there is nocourt order. Generally, if the parents are unmarried th…e mother has sole custodyand control in most states until the father can establish hispaternity. Remember, a child's mother can always be identified bymedical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was notlegally married at the time of the birth he must establish hispaternity by signing the birth certificate at the time of birth(waiving DNA testing rights) which must be done with mother'sconsent. If he doesn't sign the birth certificate then he must seekanother way to establish his paternity and that is done through aDNA test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court andonce established the father can request visitations, custody andset up a schedule of regular child support payments for the child. Without further details it seems as though this father is making uphis own rules and exerting too much control over the child and thechild's mother. She should seek help ASAP from an attorneyor other legal advocate.
If you live in the US... The child having the father's last name has NOTHING to do with custody. If Dad is listed on the birth certificate as the father, then both parents hav…e equal custodial rights until a court declares otherwise--you need a custody order. If Dad is not listed on the birth certificate, it will be a simple thing for him to petition the court to establish paternity and once that's done he can then petition for custody/visitation.
email this guy. this is what he posted on the internet: I know that are many people have discovered they have a sibling that was put up for adoption. I understand the range of… emotions that this news brings forth. I have so many questions myself. I have been searching for over two years now for a sister that was put up for adoption in Odessa Texas. We think that she was born the end of 1949 or the beginning months of 1950 at the Gettins Clinic. She might not even know that she was adopted. I have learned a great deal about finding people. During my search I have helped several people find their loved ones. This has made all the time, money, and hard work worth while. If you need help let me know. I would like to help if I can. Sometimes it is impossible to find a family member as I have found, other times it's much easier than you think. LIN firstname.lastname@example.org
If mother have primary custody can she keep the child on the day the father is supposed to have the child?
No, that would be a violation of the court orders
In the state of VA if a father has primary physical custody of his child since she was 4 months old can the mother come in and take the primary physical custody away from him?
Not if you have it by court order, but this is a major failing in fathers when the mother runs off. They don't get a custody or child support order. They fully expect mom t…o come back, than even when they do move on, they still don't get an order. This is particularly bad for single fathers, because without a court order, they legally have no assume rights to the children (see link) . For marred men, the mother comes back, ask for visitation, which he gives freely. She gets possession of the children, than files for custody. He's left with an expensive custody challenge, especially if she claims she left because he was abusive. . DADS, IF MOM RUNS OFF, FILE FOR CUSTODY AND CHILD SUPPORT, IMMEDIATELY!!! DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE AND YOU FIND YOURSELF ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN!!!
If a non married father wants to put the child up for adoption but the mother wants to keep it does the father have to pay child support?
Single fathers have no assumed legal rights to the child, so he can't do anything except pay child support.
Filed is not custody, and if she didn't have possession at the time, she cannot get temporary custody. He moved faster.
If his name is on the birth certificate he is the legal parent along with the mother. If they have split up she can go to court and ask for custody.
No. He needs to wait until the child is born. See related question.
Can a unmarried mother take a child from Ireland to England without the fathers consent if he has primary custody?
If he has primary custody or even visitation rights, you cannottake his child far enough away that he cannot readily exercise hiscustody/visitation rights unless he gives you …permission to do so.
No. The adoption would require the mother's voluntary consent unless a court deems her to be an unfit parent and terminates her parental rights. See related question link.
Of course not. The father is not above the law. Whatever he is doing to keep the mother from her child, he needs to be reported to the authorities immediately. He is in contem…pt of a court order. The mother needs to speak with an advocate. In addition to what he is doing being in contempt of a court order she is also a victim of abuse. She needs to speak up. Of course not.

No. The child has 2 parents not just one so both need to give their consent.
Does the biological father of a child have any rights to a child if birth mother and presumed birth father put child up for adoption?
Yes. The child cannot be put up for adoption unless both biological parents give up their parental rights so unless you have done that the child can not be adopted unless the …court strip you of your parental rights. Her boyfriend or "birth father" as you call him, has no rights to the child at all and can not put the child up for adoption. If you have not established paternity in court and got your name on the birth certificate I suggest you hurry up because before that is done you have no rights. Get a lawyer. Clarification The presumed father is the person that the law presumes to be the legal father of a child until some legal action is taken to prove otherwise. The husband of a woman who gives birth to a child by another man is the 'presumed father' unless the other man is legally determined to be the child's biological father. A man who is named as the child's father on the birth certificate by his consent is the presumed father even if he is not the biological father. State laws vary regarding presumed father status. If there is a presumed father that may mean the biological father has not stepped up to the plate to confirm his paternity. He has no parental rights until he establishes his paternity legally. That would halt the adoption if done in a timely manner. This would be a complicated situation and you should obtain legal advice from an attorney who specializes in custody and adoption issues.
