If you were never married to the father of the child(Children) custody HAS NOT been established. You must go to court and have custody determined. My child lived with me for 5 Years. The father paid support to the state of Missouri Which I entern received, and he visited on occasion. One weekend he picked her up for a visit and disappeared. No one would help because custody was never established. He had just as much right as I.

The mother. The father have to prove paternity by a DNA test and can then get his parental rights and petition for custody, visitation and pay child support.


Laws vary in different jurisdictions. Generally, an unmarried father who signed an affidavit of paternity has established his paternity and can file a custody case. If you were never married to the other parent of your child, and never signed an affidavit of paternity then you must establish paternity legally (by a DNA test) before you can start a custody case.

If an adult takes a child without LEGAL custody, it is kidnapping-- in the USA, for sure. Depends. if you are still married and none of you have gotten temporary custody yet until the divorce is finalized, both have equal rights to the child and it would not be kidnapping. If you have never been married and the father have never applied for custody or visitation the mother have custody. So she can leave the state with the child without his permission but he cannot leave with the child without her permission.


If the parents are married they both have equal right to the child unless one party gets temporary custody pending a divorce. If they are unmarried and have never been married the mother automatically has custody. The father would have to go to court to establish his paternity and petition for joint custody and visitations.


If the child is a minor in the state of Utah and the parents of the child have never been married then both parents are awarded equal custody. However, if there's a reason why one parent cannot care for the child, then the parent who is capable of caring for the child is awarded custody.


You have custody unless there is a court order saying otherwise. The father kidnapped him. Since you were never married he would have to go to court to get his parental rights and custody, visitation and pay child support. If he has not done that he has no rights to the child. So call the police.


A biological father has the right to sue for sole custody, shared custody, or visiting rights to the child; even if he was never married to the mother. He may have to have genetic testing done to prove he is the father if this is at issue.
