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.

If the mother is not married to the father, he has no rights period, even if living with her. see link below



If you are not married the custody automatically falls on the mother and the father have to go to court to get visitation or custody. If you are married you have equal rights.



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.


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



No, not unless you and the mother were married. You will need to go to family court and GET your rights.


The answer depends on the state where you live, but generally not. Most fathers, particilarly if not married to the mother, have fewer rights.


Yes, If he was married to your birth mother before you were born.



If they are legally married, the father gets rights until mother gets out of prison, after that it is up to the state. If not legally married, they go into state custody.


In the UK, if you are married when your children are born, you both automatically have parental rights. If you are not married, then you have to apply for parental responsibility rights, if the mother does not want to share that with you. This can be done by court order. After 2003, if not married but father is written on the birth certificate, that is enough to have parental responsibility and all that that entails. Not sure how it is for you guys in the USA!
