Best Answer

If what is meant by the term "legitimate" pertains to whether the father is responsible for supporting the child, then the answer would be yes. Once paternity has been established either by the signing of the birth certificate, a declaration of parentage or by DNA testing the father can be held responsible for support of the child and likewise he is entitled to petition for custodial or visitation rights.
