Paternity & Single Fathers Rights

Updated on May 18, 2013

What A Single Father Needs To Know

More than 40% of American children are born out of wedlock. The fathers of these children often will become involved in paternity cases to determine their parental responsibilities. If you are one of these fathers, here are some things you need to know and do.

A Father's Rights

The issues of single fathers are two fold, covering those who are knowingly having children outside wedlock, such as with a live in significant other, and those who have learned they are (or will be) a father by an ex, or that one-night-stand. However, they share the same issues in that both are financially responsible for the child, and neither have any "Legal Parental Rights" to the child, even while paying child support.

In every US State, a single mother has Sole Custody AND Control of a child born outside wedlock, regardless of the living circumstances of the parents. The only specific right the father of the child possesses is the right to petition the court for some level of access and custody rights.

However, while the mother of the children has the full power and resources of State and Federal Government to establish and enforce a Child Support Claim, the father does not have these same resources available to establish his access rights.

You & Your Ex

Invariably, most men who have had a child with a girlfriend will learn how few rights they have when she decides he's no longer worthy of her, or her child.

DO NOT PAY ANY KIND OF SUPPORT FOR THE CHILD UNTIL A DNA TEST IS DONE, AS IT ACKNOWLEDGES YOUR FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CHILD.

Once you begin paying child support, regardless of whether you are the father or not, you can be required to continue paying.

If you are paying without a court order, it can be considered a gift, with you ordered to repay for the same time period, especially if she's on Welfare, up to 18 years worth.

  1. Get a DNA test done. If you have contact with the child, for confirmation purposes only, you can use a kit purchase from a pharmacy, or online, costing around $100. It requires only two samples, the father and child. This will give you results, but it will not be admissible as evidence in court. A court admissible test, costing around $400, must be performed by a certified clinic. A Prenatal Test can also be performed. If the mother refuses you access, than a court order may be required.
  2. If paternity has been confirmed, but a child support order is not in place, go to the Child Support Enforcement Office (AG in Texas) to setup a voluntary Child Support Order. If you wait for them to file against you ,it will result in you paying court costs of up to $5000.
  3. Take a Certified Parenting Course. The court is going to order you to take it anyway, so by showing you've already taken it only looks good to them. Check with your local Adult Education services, or the Community College. There are also online courses available.
  4. Start keeping a Daily Journal of all your activities. The most common way to prevent a father from getting his rights through the courts is a false allegation. A Daily Journal is your number one piece of evidence in court and you can even refer to it while on the stand. Further, create a Chronological Statement in preparation for hiring an attorney, if one is needed.
  5. Gather Evidence. If legal in your state, Record All Conversations you have with the child's mother.
  6. If this goes to court, you will be ordered into Mediation. If the mother is willing, take the lead, and suggest it to her. By doing this, instead of hiring attorneys, you go to a mediator to hammer out an agreement. A Mediator is an Attorney or Paralegal with certified training as a mediator. You each have to pay half the fees in order for the mediator to have the appearance of being unbiased.
  7. If you are being denied access, write her a letter notifying her of intent to exercise visitation on a specific date, like Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. (see this link for example)
  8. Sign the letter and make five (5) copies. Mail the original "Certified Mail" and the other with "Delivery Confirmation" (75ยข + postage). These are two separate types of mailings.
  9. Even if she rejects the Certified Letter, she will still receive the letter with Delivery Confirmation. A Deliver Confirmation can be obtained from the USPS website.

Whether the Certified Mail Confirmation Card (with her signature), or the Certified Letter itself comes back, attach it unopened to a copy of the letter, along with a printout of the Delivery Confirmation from the USPS website. File these away for future use.

Repeat this procedure each time you attempt to see the child, no more than every two weeks, but every week is better.

When you file for visitation rights, take these documents to the County Courthouse. Have the Clerk of the Court notarize and place them in the case file. Doing this yourself saves you on attorney fees.

When you do go to court, the judge will these letters while preparing for the hearing.

When you show up to pick up the child(ren), follow the instructions on Visitation Denial.

If you and the mother are civil, consider Bird Nest Custody.

      I have 2 kids that I love with all of my heart. Ex wife abandoned my kids and i. I got full emergency custody. She did receive welfare and claim my kids on her taxes and she did not pay child support. She is making my life a hell because I won't turn my back on my kids. She remarried. I got hurt at work. Unable to work and for being disabled child support arrested me. She is taking to child support all the time y still hurt from the accident and disable. The court and is and welfare knows that she committed fraud by receiving welfare and claim my kids while I have emergency full custody and primary custody. She got kids primary custody because I was going to be homeless. Do to i got welfare denied 2 time. I have to spend about $7k to be in my kids life. I just tire of the system screwing with me for doing the right thing. Any comments!

      This is sneaky, but worth it. My son has custody of his daughter. His main evidence ... text messages, emails and facebook. He did want to keep a civil relationship between his ex-gf and himself, but he also gathered LOTS of evidence against her. She would call, start talking about pertinent things ... he would claim he couldn't hear on his phone and they text or emailed everything. Sounds simple, but it works.

      My grandson has a two year old daughter, he has cared for her since birth. He recently gained custody of his child, it was a difficult case because he and the mother were never married. In our state, the father has no rights if he does not marry the child's mother. He now has a court order for the mother to pay child support. His little girl is his life, he is a wonderful father. It has been tough but with love and family support he has accomplished this. I am so proud of him

      @anonymous: You need to determine the amount of child support you should be paying and put that into a trust fund that you cannot draw from. Put it in there monthly. In that way, you are covered in case some judge grants her retroactive child support, and it will go a long way in a custody challenge to show the court how you were prepared. If time passes and she does not file before the statute of limitations, than you will have quite a next egg. However, that means 23 years, as that is the limit for Ohio, where she may be living at the time.

      my son is just found out he is a father of a 9 mos old. He didn't want to be a father, he was in shock and still is. he doesn't know what to do, since some attorneys gave him advise to just pay the child support and be a dad. i disagree only because my son and this girl really arent ready to be parents. my son has done what he was advised by seeing this child since he found out he was a father. this girl wont let him see the 9 mos old at all, now he feels hes too young and can't buy into be a father like the attorneys says. im very sad to see my son struggle with this he has said it was a 1 night stand and really doesn't know this girl at all and now has to deal with this person is like cancer. he now wants to give up his rights and just pay the child support and live his life without the hassle of the childs mom. we are in utah and the moms always win every court case regarding a child. i don't blame him, for him saying that hes not ready to be a father when hes young and will make mistakes because of his inexperience to the world and the utah law will always make him look to be a bad guy and hell always have to be under a scope of trying to be a father simply because hes not ready to be one. any advise at this point for me as a grandmother, we all want to know this 9 mos old, but my son doesn't want us to be infected with the hassles of dissappointment of not seeing the child or having time with him/her?

      Thank you for your advice. I know that my wording was choppy. I have had a lot on my mind since her friend reached out. I know that she will want to ask for back pay but is there a way to convince a judge that she walked out on me, and that she made it clear to every mutual person we knew that the child was not mine, because she wanted to believe that, and that they were not to give me any information. I even have documents to show I have tried to find her, but she does not want to be found.

      Just the Dads House Groups for your state and and study the whole manual. It sounds like she is going to be trouble, so you need to prepare for the usual false allegations.

      I went to ultra sounds and was there for the mother of my child until one day she told me she was going to Texas to Gabe the baby and put a guy she never even meet on the birth certificate. After she left she came back too have our child, however she never returned my phone calls, she changed her number, and made it hard for me to get in contact with her. She even told the hospital that i was going to steal our baby from the hospital. After the baby was born she tried to convince everyone that it was not mine and make it sound like i walked out on them. It's been that she has been running from me for the years, making it so that i can not find her. She moved states a couple times, and moved within our state plenty of times. Here recently a friend she betrayed reached our because of the safety of the child. I have always wanted to be a part odd our child life but the mother had everyone against me and made it that no one would tell me where she was. I even looked into getting a paternity test done after the child was born because she had everyone believing our baby was another mans. In part to looking onto the test i looked onto what i needed to do with going to court, however i was told until i can find her there was nothing to be done. Now i know where they are, how should i proceed?

      @George McCasland: Arkansas is a shit state. Anyone that's ever lived there will tell you that! (Arkansas is the worse state to be a man in!)

      The United States is about 100 years behind on "moral laws" meaning that other countries have better laws concerning parenting. In Germany both parents are equal. No muss, no fuss. Here in the US the men are automatically dogs, women are viewed as saviours. This is not right or correct.

      I've seen women in this country unfit to raise a dog that got custody of kids. I've wonderful father's that truly cared, get denied custody because the mother's lied to the judge. I've mother's take child support and use it for drugs, while the kids went around in old, worn out clothes, and worn shoes that were unfit to give to Goodwill. I've seen mother's get custody that pushed their kid off on ANYONE that would watch them.

      This is a sad country, when it comes to being a parent, and worse, being a father!!!

      @anonymous: What I'm saying is that there are many variations on this. What she thinks she can do, and can do are two different things.

      The problem is knowing what you can and should be doing, especially when it comes to involving an attorney. Family law is not a required court to become an attorney, and most only go into family law as a fallback position, when they cannot get that big corporate job. Then, they take just enough training to get certified. For right now, he has no presumed legal rights to the child, until approved by the courts, which has to be done before any consideration of custody. Also, regardless of her history, one false allegation of child sexual abuse, the first day after he has had visitation rights, can throw a wrench into the whole process. Over 60% of fathers seeking custody are accused of child sexual abuse, so you must be ready for anything to happen, which is what the manual is for. Are your recording all your conversations with her, and anyone else, as regards the case? That is legal in your state.

      I'm not here to solve your problems. I'm here to teach you how to solve them yourself, now and in the future after my heart finally fails. All my knowledge, and 24 years of experience is in the manual.

      @George McCasland: Well, thanks but no thanks. You are apparently not reading my post. This case you referenced is very different. That father/child relationship was well established. He had already claimed the child as his. Our case is very different. And I'm in GA, as my name suggests. I was looking for similar cases for additional information. I will just wait patiently as our attorney suggested. And we will win, because this mother has a drug history, unstable living arrangements, and is uncooperative. All she wants is a paycheck. And what she's going to get is a rude awakening

      @George McCasland: Will do.

      Seems to me, her attorney is trying to get her child support for a child that might not even be his. And that's just wrong!! She can't have support and not allow him rights to the child. We have been fighting to see the child since its birth in April. And are still fighting to get a paternity test too

      My ex-husband and I are back together after being divorced a little over one year. During this year, a woman claims she got pregnant with his child. He told her, he did not think it was his and she refused to discuss any options with him regarding not keeping the child. She told him she was going to keep the child and raise it without him, because he "was a jerk". After giving birth, she immediately went to the state and him served for child support. He has hired an attorney, he is asking for paternity/legitimation and if the child is his, he wants rights, i.e. custody (due to her lengthy drug history) and a name change, and child support from her. She just answered his suit and denied the legitimation but is proceeding with child support action! Are you kidding me? HOW can she sleep at night? I don't think she can win, but how can someone deny paternity yet seek child support? The system is so lop-sided for women. And as a woman, I am appalled.

      ARe you familiar with this? How will the judge look at a mother who refuses to let the supposed father a paternity test, refuses to let him see the child and then demands child support?

      @anonymous: Unmarried men have no presumed rights to their children in the US, or any other country, except Germany, until granted them by Family Court. This is regardless of the living arrangements of the parents. Further, if no child support order is in place, he would be ordered to pay up to 11 years of retroactive support. He could avoid this by first contacting child support enforcement and request help to determine paternity and establish support. He needs to do this for two reasons, if he begins paying, and it turns out the child is not his, he can still be required to pay, and depending on the state, be denied any access rights to the child.

      http://dadshouseedctr.org/PaternityFraudsSilentVic...

      Once that is paternity is determined, than he can move forward on everything else. He needs to study the main Dads House Manual page on what he needs to begin doing now.

      There is no ready information regarding what happens when the State itself does not follow the established legalities in providing the obligation notices in timely fashions.

      I am presently having my case investigated by the civil rights division of the DOJ regarding this very subject, going back to the AFDC days from 1992 to 1996.

      My case is solid, and though I have been refused due process by the State of Nevada itself, the DOJ assures me that I have a legitimate complaint.

      I expect I will be the first to win under such measures, and would like to know of others who have had this problem, and what was done, or not done.

      https://hubpages.com/relationships/RecordingPhoneC...

      I do not know what state you are in, but in the past, I would never recommend calling family services, as it normally just meant that the child would be put into foster care while the mother was sent to rehab.

      However, the drop in the economy has most states looking for ways to avoid that, and more often asking the father to take the child. The problem that arises is whether they will think he is doing it simply to get custody, or out of true concern for the child.

      Have you showed the text message to to the police. It is a federal felony to sell, or give, even legal prescriptions to another person. If she is asking you, than there is a good chance she is asking others. Getting arrested for it would involve family services involved without him being the one to contact them, and that may not even be the case if she were to get caught and arrested during a weekend in which you have possession of the child.

      Have you been studying the whole manual?

      My fiancé has a situation with one of his daughters. Her mother is always moving and is getting kicked out of a friend's house again. She texts my fiancé saying she still hasn't found a place. Her boyfriend called my fiancé a few days ago and told him that the child woke up in the middle of the night and the mother went in and hit her on the head to get her to shut up. He also told us that she got a prescription for pain killers and took them all in 5 days. We also have a text saved of her asking us if we could sell her any pain pills. I am tired of waiting for anything worse to happen to his daughter and we are currently getting papers filled out for custody of her. We went in with the papers and they said we are still missing stuff and do we have cover sheets and they can't give us advice. It's just a little annoying and my fiancé is sick over the situation. Would it be helpful at all to call child services and tell them all of this stuff. We feel that in this situation, his daughter needs to be removed ASAP, but all these court filings seem like they are going to take forever to even temporarily remove her from the home, if there is a home anymore. I've been helping my fiancé with all of this and it feels like it is women's right's first in Utah, which is not very fair.

      @George McCasland: We called the police and they didn't see any marks on my son. They went to the apartment and told her she had to leave or charges would be filed (we didn't know that). She said in front of the officer, myself and one of my older sons she would make arrangements to move. 5 days later she and her Mom came to get her things. Now she wants to sue him and the apartment complex for kicking her out. Since that was her place of residents (for 3 months). REALLY?! I think she should have objected BEFORE moving out her things. Our attorney says my son (call him Kyle) has to send her a letter and maybe pay about $200 for her medical. This way he can say in court he COULD provide for a child even unborn. Her family is angry that Kyle can't be FORCED to pay child support because he is on SSI. Kyle does want to support his child and be part of his life. We are all keeping our fingers crossed the DNA later comes back negative (not the Daddy) but know it's a reality he is. The next 6 months plus 18 yrs is going to be a nightmare.

      @anonymous: If she is a drug addict, she should only have supervised visitation until she has been clean for at least a year. Check out the whole manual in learning what to do, and how to be prepared. There are many ways she can try to circumvent you having custody, the most common of which is a false allegation of abuse, so you need to be prepared. Also, check out the list of Dads House groups.

      I am in a situation where my sons mother is a drug addict (heroin) and childrens services stepped in and gave me temp custody. For the most part she has worked with me and is saying she is going to voluntarily give me perm custody but the thing is she wants shared custody visitations when she lives 2 hours away now. we used to do this when she had custody but she moved and now it will be harder as my son is starting school. I am worried she is going to go back on her word and try to take him.

      My 22 yr old son is disabled (walks with forearm crutches). He met a gal that decided to find out if he could still have sex because he was crippled. Well.. she is now pregnant with she claims is his child. During that time of conception she admitted to cheating on him at least 3 times. Over the past few months of them living together she decided to abuse my son by punching/slapping him in the face and verbal abuse. She insist he has to get a job/learn to drive and must do all the chores around the house. This wasn't the first time of her attack on him (she is 20 yrs old) so the police were called. She was ask to leave by them and agreed to move out. Now she wants to sue him for kicking her out, not allow him to see his child, has threatened others members of the family. Her biggest problem is she can't collect child support from his SSI. He is already getting a DNA test in order but she states that ANY contact included that will get him served with harassment. That IF it's proven he IS the father he will NEVER see the child or know anything. Her family just wants him to GO AWAY. They are worried about a child born out of wedlock and from someone that is handicapped. Their reputation is at stake also IF the child isn't he and the possibility that SHE has slept around. It's going to be a long haul for the next 6 months. She also wants to be sure that I (Grandma) don't get to see the child because I'm only compensating for not having NORMAL children. I have 4 boys over 21. Two of them are just fine. The oldest is a father (with an EX also), second serving in the military for our freedoms. 3rd son is the one having all this going on. My youngest is very disabled (in a wheelchair) and requires 24/7 care. He is a fantastic son. I'm not sure why she thinks I'm compensating for not having NORMAL children. I love them all just as they are. I'm very blessed. The gal just seems so angry at not having things her way. It seems to be more about MONEY than about another loving family to be part of a child's life.

      I think it is horrific when a sociopathic, lying, control freak father tells terrible lies about his childrens mother and then continues to mentally, emotionally and physically abuse the children and if you have kids in weymoth school. this sicko may be teaching them. Don't be a father who has to have control be a father who works together for the children. the sicko I married ten years later still, obsessed with hurting me, and abusing them in the process. some men are good fathers, but if all you want to do is hurt their mother, your sick. sorry but when a woman grows a child inside her for nine months, breast feeds them and tends their every need, there is bond you cannot comprehend, Take a child's mother away from them and you destroy two lives or more. I know there are some mothers who really may not be good mothers but I find too many men bad mouthing, men seem to accuse women of mental illness, that is the tool for so many, and they are so ignorant. both brought a child into the world, don't destroy a child and a mother to be a vindictive controlling feak afraid to separate from you precious money, a child is more valuable then all you rmoney in the world. My sons are abused by that poor dad, who plays the broke me game. the bond with a mohter and child, imagine having your genatils taken from you it isn't even close to what you do to a child when you want custody to save your wallet or hurt their mother.

      The sad thing is, that in general the laws are out there for the mother and from day one all we as fathers get to do is strive to be perfect and happy that we are now financially strained with the mother taking our child away whenever she wants. They wonder why there is the syndrome of deadbeat fathers. We strained with our money to pay as much as needed with no confirmation that our child is the one benefiting from it and we have to spend thousands more just to be a legal part of our own childs life. In a round about way this kind of feels like "You the father are guilty until you are proven innocent!!!"

      I THINK IT IS SAD THAT A WOMAN WOULD BRING AN innocent CHILD INTO THIS WORLD AND DENY A LOVING FATHER HIS GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO BE IN THE CHILDS LIFE! AND MAKE THE FATHER SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO GET ACCESS TO HIS CHILD! AND KNOWING THAT BY DENYING THE FATHER HIS CHILD SHE IS SETTING THEIR CHILD UP FOR MANY PROBLEMS AS THEY GET OLDER.

      @anonymous: You can still file for paternity rights in your county and for an injunction that the child be moved back there pending a review of custody and access.

      What an important service you are performing. One of my sons fought for and won primary custody after breaking through so many untruths.

      I hate how a Mom can use a kid for personal gain. And say Dads are the problem.
