Hello, so you want to prevent the biological father from visiting unannounced?
Technically speaking, other than your presumption, he is not the biological father until a court ordered paternity test is done, and paternity is established. Other than that he is an individual who can be trespassed from your residence.
I would consult the sheriff's office if he continues to visit unannounced and trespass him from your property. As a part of that trespass I would institute a no-contact order as well that would prevent him from communicating with your wife.
Does this answer your question?
So if he show's up again I need to contact the sherriff's office and ask for a no-contact order. At which time he would have to go through legal means to establish parental rights if he so desires and is able to do so.
Or can the no-contact be instituted after one showing.
There has to be some sort of criminal action to allow the no-contact to issue.
One visit does not warrant that. Just inform him if he continues to show you will call the authorities.
Ok that is what I thought so it has to border on harrasment. He was told not to try to make contact in the hospital again by security.
Right. Does this answer your question.
yes it does. Thank you
