Yes. The custodial parent can seek child support from the non-custodial parent. The amount will depend on the non-custodial parent's income. The non-custodial parent has the right to seek a visitation schedule. Both issues can be addressed in a single court order.

What are the rights of the father?

The father has essentially the same rights as the mother - e.g., to petition for and receive child support, custody or visitation, and otherwise be involved in the child's life. If your question is really about the rights of the non-custodial parent, please be more specific. Generally, if the parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody and control in most states until the father can establish his paternity. Remember, a child's mother can always be identified by medical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was not legally married at the time of the birth he can establish his paternity through a DNA test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court. Once paternity is established in court, the father can request visitations or custody through the court. If the mother retains physical custody she can request that the court issue a child support order. If the father gets physical custody he can request a child support order.

The father should review any documents related to his case including a separation agreement, visitation schedule, child support order and custody order.
