The mother assumes automatic custody, unless she is unfit.

If not married the custody belong to the mother automatically and the father have to go to court to get visitation rights or custody. If the mother can not take care fo the child and neglects it, the father can alsoi get custody.



In the United States an unmarried mother has legal custody of her child unless and until the father establishes his paternity in court and requests custody and/or visitations.


If they are legally married, the father gets rights until mother gets out of prison, after that it is up to the state. If not legally married, they go into state custody.



The mother. The father have to apply for visitation and custody in court.





The mother. The father have to petition the court for shared custody.


As long as the father is a good father, he will have the same rights as the mother. You may be even able to get 50% custody of the child.

Single father has none. Married father is equal to that of the mother, but in application, unenforceable. see links


No, he would be charged with kidnapping. She has custody since birth since they were never married and he never went to court for custody.One case can be, if the mother is not financialcapable to care of the child, the the father may proceed but firstly the mother must be agree for that.



Since there is no court order and you were never married it is the mother that have custody. He can be charged with kidnapping.


If the parents are married they have equal rights. If not married, the mother in general have sole custody in most states until the father have established his paternity. When he has done that by DNA test he can petition for custody and visitation in court.


It depends on the custody order already in place. If the mother is violating the custody order, the father can sue her for contempt, and ask that she be appropriately sanctioned. If there is no custody order in place, the father will need to sue the mother for legitimation or divorce, depending on whether they are married, and ask that custody be determined.



The father must establish his paternity through the courts since he and the mother were not married. He can petition for full custody. He should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues. The mother's abandonment can certainly be used as evidence that the father should receive legal custody. He is providing the day to day care of the child.The father must establish his paternity through the courts since he and the mother were not married. He can petition for full custody.

The father would be the favored person to get legal custody if the mother had custody and died unless he was found to be unfit to have custody.


No, unless the baby's biological father relenquishes his parental rights, he would get custody of the child if the mother dies, not her husband. The biological father must sign his rights away to the mother's husband.
