WHen you fill ou t the paperwork for the birth certificate they ask you who the father is. It's your choice what you tell them. If the person you are referring to accepts p[aternity as well and signs on the dotted line at the same time you do - voila - that person is the father and no one knows any different. They do not test for paternity UNLESS the real father decides to claim them and then he has to sue for it. You must wait until the child is born before adoption can take place. The baby isn't considered legal until it is born and since anything can happen between now and the time the baby is born, waiting is a good idea anyway.
You can't confirm the father of an unborn child, but once the baby is born a paternity test can be done
Depending on the jurisdiction, the biological father has certain rights. You should hire an attorney.
No. The father does not legally have any rights until the child is born.
No, an obligated parent is only responsible for the support of his or her own biological or adopted child. The father of a pregnant minor is not financially responsible for her unborn child. However, the father of the unborn child is responsible for its support, even if he is a minor. The individual circumstances and the laws of the state will determine the extent of his obligations.
If the father passes it to the mother, she could then pass it to the unborn child. So I suppose it could happen.
No, a father smoking marijuana will not hurt an unborn child. The mother should do her best to stay out of the room, but the father smoking will not hurt.
Be glad you aren't going to be a father
DNA tests are almost always an absolute indicator of the paternity of children. In very rare cases (chimera), involving the ovaries of unborn fraternal twins, DNA testing will also correctly indicate that the birth mother is not the biological mother.
No. The father of the pregnant daughter has no legal obligation to support her child. That responsibility belongs to the biological father of the unborn child assuming that the pregnancy is not terminated nor the child placed for adoption or parental rights terminated by the court.
There should be a paternity test just to clarify things, than it can be done using a mediator. see links below
In the United States the father has no rights until the child is born.
As soon as the child is born.
No, the child has to be born first.
It can be very complicated depending upon the laws of the state in which the couple reside and whether or not the biological father disagrees with the adoption. If the child is a result of an affair during the marriage, the court rarely intervenes if the husband accepts the child as his own, even if the biological father files for parental rights. If the child was conceived out of a relationship before the woman married, then no action can be taken until the child is born, parentage is established and the biological father voluntarily relinquishes his parental rights. If the biological father forfeits his rights to the child, the couple can petition the court for the husband to legally adopt said child. A biological parent CANNOT be forced to give up his parental rights to a child except by a court when it pertains to matters of abuse, neglect, etc. Please be advised, this is the basic legal procedure, exact information pertaining to the issue should be obtained from an attorney licensed to practice family law in the state where the couple reside.
When a woman is pregnant only she can legally decide what happens to her body and the fetus.
You can try, but has to be court approved.
No one apart from the mother can obtain "custody" of a fetus. Custody battles must wait until the child has been born. The biological mother always retains custodial rights to a child when the couple are unmarried, until paternity is established and the biological father petitions the court for custodial or visitation rights.
In the United States, fathers have no rights regarding unborn children. In Kentucky, a father won't have rights to a child unless he's on the birth certificate or until he establishes paternity in court.
