He already stands a chance of being arrested and charged with statutory rape so his rights became limited when he decided to sleep with the child. He should get a lawyer soon because anyone can report this relationship (a neighbor, teacher, parents, etc) to the county prosecutor.
If we ignore the risk of being charged and sentenced for Statutory rape, you have rights as a dad. If she is not willing to give you access to your child you have to go to court and sort it out regarding visitation rights, child support etc. If the mother is a minor living at home you have no right to see her if her parents are against it but they have no right to keep you from your child.
Yes, if the mother does not want the child and the father is willing to take the child. Then the mother may sign her rights over to the father if the father is able to take of the child. Signing over one's rights will not terminate child support obligation(s).
if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Yes, equal to the mother.
If a father finds out he is the biological father of a child, he has as many rights to the child as the mother does. He can take the mother to court for custody or to set up a parenting plan.
As long as the father is a good father, he will have the same rights as the mother. You may be even able to get 50% custody of the child.
no the mother should have the legal obligation to take care of the child
First, without a court order, the mother cannot prohibit the father from seeing the child. If he has not voluntarily given up his rights to the child, and a judge has not created a custody schedule, the father has as much right to see the child as the mother.Second, if the father does voluntarily give up his parenting rights, or a judge does involuntarily remove his parenting rights (or awards full custody to the mother), the father would still owe child support until his child reaches the age of majority and has graduated high school.
Child support would generally go to the person raising the child. Mother might even be ordered to pay to father.
if the father has not signed he has no rights to the child unless he take you to court and gets a DNA test done. until that happens the father has no rights what so ever but if he has signed the father would have the same rights as the mother
If not married he has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support. If married to the mother they have equal rights to the child.
I would think that if the mother and father are not together and the mother is willing to give up custody of the child to the father than the father would have rights to the child. If the adoption papers haven't been canceled yet they will have to be signed when the baby is born saying that the mother and father give up parental rights to the child
No, the mother and father of the child both have to agree whether to hand over a child
No. If the mother is unmarried then she has legal custody of her child automatically. If the father wants parental rights he must establish his paternity in court.No. If the mother is unmarried then she has legal custody of her child automatically.

No he is then the father of the child but in order to get rights he has to go to court and prove paternity first in order to get visitation, custody and pay child support. If married to the mother when the child is born, he is automatically considered the father and have rights.
Assuming you mean a biological father of a child born to an unwed mother. The rights a guy who fathers a child out of wedlock vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. For example, in some places the father has to be notified before the child can be put up for adoption; in other places the guy has no rights if he is not married to the mother. Even if he would normally have rights, a court may still deny or revoke rights to see the child because of an offense. If he is the biological father of the child and you as the mother are keeping the child from him he can actually fight you in court and potentially win custody of the child. Sadly it is rather common for a mother to move and take the child with her and the father has no recourse to force her to grant access to the child. You can go to court to get them to tell the mother to grant you access to the child, but the courts seldom enforce those rulings for unmarried fathers.
Each has equal rights and responsibilities.
Yes, but father can challenge.
It depends on what you mean by signing over her rights. A mother could consent to the father being given sole legal custody. She may be required to pay child support. You should consult with an attorney if you want more information. In the state of Alabama, yes a mother can sign over her parental rights to the father of the child.
In every state except Arizona the mother has sole custody of the child and the father has no assumed rights until granted them by the courts.
No, if what is meant is, can a biological mother of a child give custodial rights to her mother without the necessity of court procedure and/or the agreement of the biological father.
The illegal mother does not have rights to your biological child. So yes you do have full rights to your child then the illegal mother. Only the biological mother has rights to the baby unless its done in court. There's no such thing as an "illegal mother" - motherhood is not a crime. I suspect the author of the question meant to say that the child's mother is an undocumented alien. If so, in the US she has the same rights to her child as a citizen.
Not unless she is adopting the child and the mother is dead or has already given up any rights to the child.
Yes. And it's not the mother who gets his rights terminated, it is the court.
If not married the custody belong to the mother automatically and the father have to go to court to get visitation rights or custody. If the mother can not take care fo the child and neglects it, the father can alsoi get custody.
