If you weren't abusive, an alcoholic or into drugs and your wife just left you, then she has no right to keep your child away from you. However, if you choose to see your child then it's your responsibility to make child support payments whether you and your wife get back together or not. If you want to see your child then it's best to contact a lawyer and go through the court system and if you win the custody battle, then be responsible and pay child support. Marcy

If you do not know if you are the father of an unborn child can you sign over guardianship to the maternal grandmother of the unborn child?

The answer depends totally on whether or not you were married to the child's mother. Any child born to a married couple is considered to be the legal child of the husband until proven otherwise. HOWEVER, if you were NOT married to the child's mother, then you have no legal rights, even if you are the father. An unwed mother who has a child is considered the sole legal parent of that child in most states. Even if you were proven to be the father - you have no legal rights without going to court , if you were not married.

He has just as many rights to the child as the mother does. It is his child too after all. HOWEVER- his rights are not as cut and dry as are the mothers.

Then and only then can he exercise his rights as a father.

Can an illegal immigrant mother receive child support if she leaves country and father gives up all rights?

If the father Legally gave up his parental rights - (signed legal papers), then he is no longer legally responsible to pay child support for the child. Did he give up parental rights so you could remove the child from the country? A family member of mine had to have her baby's father sign away his parental rights so he would not have to pay child support when he entered the military. So - once parental rights are signed away Legally, the father has NO obligation to pay child support. You cannot have it both ways - you cannot have him sign away his parental rights, yet still expect him to pay child support.
