Yes, the birth certificate will not give him custody. The father have to prove paternity in court with a DNA test and he can then petition for visitation or custody. Then he can also pay child support.

Not if it's court ordered. If another man signed the birth certificate and the mother knew he was not the biological father she is guilty of fraud.

He can then proceed to get his name on the birth certificate and also get visitation, pay child support and petition for custody.

How can an unmarried mother obtain authorization to take her young son overseas if she and the child's father have never been married or established custody and the father will not sign the forms?

If the father is named on the birth certificate then the mother will have to file a writ of habeas corpus to request sole custody of the child. The father will be notified of the action and will be given a chance to contest it. The court will then rule as to which parent should retain custody or if it should be shared and if the child can be taken outside of the country. If father is not named on the child's birth certificate all the mother must do is present the birth cerificate at the time she applies for a passport for the child.


Can a father get custody if he did not sign the birth cerificate but the DNA test said he the father?

Yes he can. The birth certificate does not give him parental rights, only the court can when he presents the DNA result. But if the mother is in the picture it will be shared custody at the most unless she is unfit.


Does the father of the child get custody if his name is on the birth certificate?

If the parents are unmarried, simply being the name on the birth certificate doesn't bestow any custody rights. An unmarried father must establish his paternity in court and arrange for a custody hearing if he wants custody. 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 must establish his paternity by signing the birth certificate at the time of birth (waiving DNA testing rights) which must be done with mother's consent. If he signs the birth certificate he may still need to establish paternity through DNA testing. If he doesn't sign the birth certificate then he must establish his paternity through a DNA test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court. Once paternity has been established the father can request visitations, joint custody, full custody or the court will set up a schedule of regular child support payments for the child if she is to remain in the custody of her mother. The court will schedule a hearing and issue an order that is in the best interest of the child.

If an unmarried couple in Wisconsin gave children the father's last name who has custody of those children?

That depends on local law but unless the father is registered as being a parent on the child's birth certificate, the custody is with the birth mother and the father has no or few rites. Also in a dispute, the courts will normally give custody to the birth mother unless there are clear overriding reasons, in the interest of the child, why this would not be appropriate.

What rights does a father have if he is not on the child's birth certificate?

In the US, 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 must establish his paternity by signing the birth certificate at the time of birth (waiving DNA testing rights) which must be done with mother's consent. If he doesn't sign the birth certificate then he must seek another way to establish his paternity and that is done 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. In the UK the father has no rights if the fathers name is on the birth certificate or not. The father has to "exercise" his rights in a court of law either way.

What rights does a father have who signed birth certificate?

It matters if the father is named on the certificate as the father. If so, then he has as much rights as the mother. But in a court of law you might find the mother has a little more. Only if the mother has a problem will the father get custody. The law see's the mother as the one who the child should live with.
