Yes. In the US the law presumes that an unmarried mother retains sole custody to the child until a court rules otherwise. Child support and custodial issues are two entirely different matters. The granting of sole custody to one parent does not relieve the non custodial parent of their financial obligations even if the couple were/are not married.

The father has essentially the same rights as the mother - e.g., to petition for and receive child support, custody or visitation, and otherwise be involved in the child's life.

Generally, if the parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody and control in most states until the father can establish his paternity. Remember, a child's mother can always be identified by medical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was not legally married at the time of the birth he can establish his paternity through a DNA test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court. Once paternity is established in court, the father can request visitations or custody through the court. If the mother retains physical custody she can request that the court issue a child support order. If the father gets physical custody he can request a child support order.
