You didn't explain what this young mother-to-be was doing to harm her baby. Smoking, drugs, alcohol, trying to get rid of the baby. There isn't much you can do as she's the mother and has a right to her own body. When the baby is born and if she mistreats her newborn then you can call Children's Aid. == More Contributor Input== Unfortunately, in the US a woman cannot be legally forced to follow a healthy live style when she is pregnant. In the majority of US states when a baby is born addicted to drugs or AFS, the attending physicians/hospital are required to notify authorities.

How can you get custody for your unborn child if you know that its yours?

No one apart from the mother can obtain "custody" of a fetus. Custody battles must wait until the child has been born. You can file for paternity testing, although it would probably be best to wait until the child is born before doing that. If the tests prove the child is yours, you can then file for custody. Due to physical restrictions, I would assume that a father can't get custody of an unborn child.

What rights does a father have if the mother of his unborn child leaves the state and denies him the right to care for his child and then comes back 6 years later suing for child support?

He has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support and also petition to sign the birth certificate. He could have done this 6 years ago when the child was born. The mother cannot deny him his parental rights. Now he will have to pay child support and he can even owe for 6 years back.
