The law does not require an unwed mother to name the father on the birth certificate. A man who is not married to the mother and wants to acquire parental rights to a child must first establish paternity through the required court procedure. However, it would seem that the woman involved in this situation would be wise to obtain information on how to protect herself if (before) it becomes necessary.
