Would probably depend if the father was married to the mother or not. Ask the hospital or the records division (birth, death, marriage license) in your town. If you aren't married, you may have to prove paternity then file for custodial rights. If you are married, it may be similar to whatever happens when a child is born and the father has been deployed.

If the father did not sign the birth certificate, then you already have sole custody.

If the father signed the birth certificate, then the mother will have to go to family court to obtain sole custody of the child, whether or not the case will be contested.

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.

Even if the father's name is on the birth certificate, and is living with the mother, except in Arizona.
