You have to prove paternity in court by a DNA test and you can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support.

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


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.


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.



Rights of a father. If he wants to see the child, or give an alimony etc...



Generally, no. Married or unmarried, the law considers the father's rights equally.


Married couples have equal parental rights unless there is a legal separation filed with the court.


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 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 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, not unless you and the mother were married. You will need to go to family court and GET your rights.



Here are a couple of ifs: Not married you have no rights. - You would have to file court docs requesting a paternity test if she will not do it herself. Not married but you are on the birth certificate. - You are automatically viewed and recognized as the father. If you disagree, you can ask for a paternity test. If you do agree you already have rights and can file court docs requesting visitation and joint custody with the mom. Married - On the birth certificate or not....whether you are the father or not - you are automatically viewed in the eyes of the court as the father. Case in point: Michael Jackson, married to his two oldest kids mom, even though he is not the father he is viewed as the father as he was married to the mom during preg and when she had the babies. He automatically has parental rights.


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.


He has the same rights as any other father, the fact that he was married to someone else is irrelevant. But since you were not married he needs to establish paternity in court so he can petition for visitation or custody and also pay child support.


You didn't provide enough detail. The answer depends on the marital status, whether paternity has been established if the parties were not married and whether the father has custody rights. If he has custody rights she is not allowed to just take them. If they are married they have equal rights to the children.


If the cousin is currently married to you, and is willing to accept parental responsibilities and adopt the child, then the father can give up his parental rights.


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!


As long as the father has not voluntarily relinquished his parenting rights, or they have not been taken from his by a court, he should have full access to medical records.


See to that she gets temporary custody asap. They both have equal rights to the kids as long as they are married.
