Absent the establishment of paternity, an unmarried father has no parental rights as he is not legally recognized as the father.When a child's parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody unless the father takes some action to establish his paternity. If no paternity is established, the father has no rights to see the child.Once paternity is established, both the father and the mother will have equal rights to custody of the child.
because now he wants to come back and establish his rigth but is been like 5 years and his wanted in texas for evading arrest.now my husband wants to adopt her as his.
what if he tries to establish his paternity? can he still have right even though its been 5 years
Unfortunately he may petition the court to establish paternity. However this does not mean that he would be granted visitation
It is unlikely that the court would order unsupervised visitation. However he may establish paternity and pay child support
is there a chance if i act first them him that my husband can adopt my daughter
Yes it is possible --
