If the parents are married they have equal rights. If not married, the mother in general have sole custody in most states until the father have established his paternity. When he has done that by DNA test he can petition for custody and visitation in court.

No, the mother is no more entitled to custody than the father. If the father currently has temporary or implied custody, then a custody order must first be established before you can get partial custody or visitation rights. For example, if you moved out and left the child in the care of the father, you forfeited your custody rights until an official custody order has been established.

No, the father, can take custody of the child but this does NOT take custody away from you just because you wanted to give your child up for adoption.


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.



No, both parents have equal rights to the child. If the child is currently living with the father, then he has established temporary custody. A court will need to decide upon a formal custody and child support agreement.

You have full custody and legal guardianship. The father have to go to court to get his parental rights and petition for custody, visitation and pay child support.


Unless the father has his parental rights terminated, of course he needs to support his child -
