Can the mother go to the father house and get her child if there isn't a court order saying that the dad has full custody?

No, the mother is no more entitled to custody than the father. If the father currently has temporary or implied custody, then a custody order must first be established before you can get partial custody or visitation rights. For example, if you moved out and left the child in the care of the father, you forfeited your custody rights until an official custody order has been established.

They do not grant custody to a man who only "says" he's the father or to someone who is "presumed" to be the father. They establish paternity first. You should contact an attorney who can review your situation and explain your options.Courts do not grant parental rights, custody and restraining orders without evidence.

I just found out that I am the biological father of a child in state's custody how do I get custody?

If you're a single father, you have no assumed rights to the child until paternity has been established by a court of jurisdiction. As such that will need to be your first step. Then, if the child is in the custody of the state you can petition for custody to be transferred to you. You should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law who can review your situation and explain your options.

Can a father who has not been around since birth get custody of a child?

Yes, but the answer depends on the details. Perhaps the father didn't know of the child. If the mother has been found unfit the father is next in line as long as he is suitable. If the father has matured and wants to be part of the child's life after not being around at first, the court may award joint custody or at least a visitation schedule and child support order. You should visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate, or consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues.
