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.

Does the father who signed the birth certificate have more rights then the biological father?

Of course, this is the case if the bio father dies before the birth of the child. The only father at the time of birth is the biological father. You cannot adopt a baby before birth - so the adoptive father signing a birth certificate, at birth, is probably not binding. And the bio father, if he is aware he is a father, must sign adoption papers. The biological father has rights under most circumstances (barring criminal activities and such) if he is aware that he has a child at all.
