Unmarried Fathers' Paternity Rights: Parenting Time, Custody, Relocation
Once you have established paternity by filing a petition, you will establish your right to participate in decisions regarding religion, education, medical care (legal custody), your right to parenting time/visitation or physical custody, and your child's mother will not be allowed to dictate to you when you see your child, or relocate out of state without an agreement or Court Order. Your parents will be able to develop a relationship with their grandchild. There is no investment you can make that has greater return than an investment in your relationship with your child.
