Can you live with your dad who lives in a different state but not on your birth certificet?

Your guardian decides where you live until you are 18yo. Atm I'm guessing that is your mother. If your father wants custody of you he would have to petition the court for your custody unless your mother gives her consent. They then have to go to court and modify the custody agreement. The birth certificate is irrelevant but if you father have not been to court to prove paternity by a DNA test he does not have parental rights. He would need to do that first. Custody, visitation and child support are parental rights.

What rights does a father have to his unborn child in Oregon?

If the parents are married both of them have equal rights to the child after the child is born. Before the birth of the child the father is not always given the same rights as he would have after the birth. For example, if the mother chooses to terminate the pregnancy things can get extremely complicated. If the parents are unmarried, the law presumes the mother to have sole custodial rights to the child before and after birth. The father must first establish paternity and then petition the court for custodial or visitation rights to the child.
