It depends if he was ever involved in the child's life. However, he does have rights. Of course this is state specific because the state is all powerful within it's boundaries. The state cannot violated the father's due process rights. If the parents has been out of the child's life for many years it is possible to terminate the parental rights and have someone else adopt the child. If this is just a case of a women who recently had a child the father will have a whole lot of rights. Need more specific facts to answer this question i have an eight month old daughter living in the UK. i will like to know if i will be able to get shear custody with the mother and how much time i can get?
