It depends on the judge's decree. * That would be determined by the amount of time between the birth of the child and the establishment of parentage and granting of the support order. Most US states have statutes of limitation relating to the time in which child support arrearages are applicable. In most cases the custodial parent will have to sue the obligated parent for any back child support that is recoverable it is rarely granted in the support order.

The really long answer short on this is: the exact same rights as if he were on the birth certificate. However, since his rights have not been legally established, he will have to go to court to establish and enforce them. He may do thing through signing an acknowledgment of paternity, or by establishing his parentage through court ordered/recognized genetic testing. Once he is established as the legal father, he can use family court to establish a schedule of visitation or custody. He will often be required to pay support as well. Hope this helps. K

Does birth mother have sole custody if birth father is paying child support?

An unmarried mother has sole custody in most jurisdictions until the father's paternity is legally established. It is assumed the father's paternity was established in your case if he is paying child support. You need to check all the documents associated with your particular court case to determine if a custody order was issued at that same time.Child support and visitation rights are two separate issues and they are addressed separately. The father's paternity must be legally established in court if the parents are unmarried and the mother seeks child support. Once paternity has been established, the court will issue a child support order based on state child support guidelines. In addition, once paternity has been established the father has the right to petition for custody and a visitation schedule.If the father fails to pay his child support he is still entitled to visitations. In that case, the mother would need to pursue the child support arrears by filing a motion for contempt of the child support order.
