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?
Yes, if the father signs an acknowledgment of paternity.
Unless the stepfather has legally adopted the children, he has no built-in legal right to them.
Most Likely, yes, as it is the FATHERS child, therefore, the child is of the fathers blood making it 'ok' to use HIS surname!
Your mother is marring your grandfather? uhh.
Fathers with parental rights are not always listed on the birth certificate.
answer is simple. GET A LAWYER
Mother Teresa had no children. She was never married.
If married to the mother? Yes. If not married, no rights either way.
Biological fathers have the right to see their children just as much as biological mothers. If they are not married to the mother, t hey may have to prove they are the father by taking a paternity test.
No as it can be ordered by the courts.
Mother Teresa was never married and had no children.
Single fathers have no parental rights until court ordered. A glass ceiling scenario, only the fathers are relegated to the subbasement of equal rights.
No, single fathers have no parental rights to the children until granted them by a court. see links below
Mother Teresa neither married nor had any children.She was a nun - spiritual woman. She was not married and didn't have any children as well.
I have this same issue. My parents never got married. My dad's right was to see me, so he did not have legal custody of me. It varies with different families, but the father has legal custody to see you and it varies if he can have custody to have you.
The mother should put the actual fathers name on the birth certificate.
Children can get any blood type either of father OR mother
If the mother is not married to the father, he has no rights period, even if living with her. see link below
Yes. Your step-father is who he is to you because he married your mother. If you married his mother, you would be his step-father. Strange but true.
With court approval
In Illinois in 1962, the child's mother could name anyone she wished (or no one), as the father, and give the child any first/last name she wished.
No, Mother Teresa had no children as she was never married.
