Child Support

Do you need to get full custody if no paternity is established and you have no child support and have not had any contact for almost a year with him?

As long as you have not named this young man on the birth certificate of your child, then you have every right to continue to look after your daughter as a single parent. If you have named this young man on the birth certificate and he has decided to fight you for this child (or hasn't said a word yet) it is best you get sole custody and be sure the courts realize he has been an unsupportive father and has not paid child support. If he has been paying child support and neither of you have custody this could be a problem and he may fight you in court for his rights.

After establishing paternity a biological father can petition the court for custodial or visitation privileges regardless if he has been placed on the birth certificate. The child support issue will only be addressed after such action has been implemented or if the birth mother files for support or public assistance.

Determining child support has only one goal which is to determine medical, financial and daycare support. Custody is NOT determined when child support is established. To establish child support you have to go to court. Otherwise if the mother was unwed and paternity/custody is not established she automatically has sole custody which entitles you to pay her child support but you are not entitled to visitation, school/dr records etc unless she gives them to you... If custody is not established then the mother has custody

Assuming this father is unmarried, he has the right to establish his paternity legally through the family court. Once his paternity has been established he can request joint custody and/or a visitation schedule and pay child support if the child is to remain in the physical custody of the mother.Assuming this father is unmarried, he has the right to establish his paternity legally through the family court.

Generally, in the United States, an unmarried mother has sole custody of her child until the father has established his paternity in court. When he does establish his paternity he can request custody, visitations and a child support order can be entered.
