Here are a couple of ifs: Not married you have no rights. - You would have to file court docs requesting a paternity test if she will not do it herself. Not married but you are on the birth certificate. - You are automatically viewed and recognized as the father. If you disagree, you can ask for a paternity test. If you do agree you already have rights and can file court docs requesting visitation and joint custody with the mom. Married - On the birth certificate or not....whether you are the father or not - you are automatically viewed in the eyes of the court as the father. Case in point: Michael Jackson, married to his two oldest kids mom, even though he is not the father he is viewed as the father as he was married to the mom during preg and when she had the babies. He automatically has parental rights.

If the father is on a child birth certificate can the mother move with the child?

The unmarried father must file a petition in the family court to establish his parental rights legally. Once established, he can request visitation rights or custody through the family court. If the mother retains custody he will be granted a visitation schedule and will also be subject to a child support order.By not establishing his parental rights legally at the time of birth, the unmarried mother has freedom of movement. Once she moves with the child to another state it will be much more difficult and costly for the father to pursue his parental rights.

What if you're not the birth father but signed acknowledgement of paternity and she takes your son?

If you are unmarried you would need to establish your "paternity" in court before you have parental rights. An unmarried mother has legal custody of her child. She could have you ruled out as the father by requesting a DNA test through the courts. When you knowingly commit perjury on a birth certificate you create a difficult and messy situation for everyone involved. You should consult with an attorney.If you are unmarried you would need to establish your "paternity" in court before you have parental rights. An unmarried mother has legal custody of her child.
