Having a problem with your system ! were does your answers post / e mail or on your site. when I answer it sends me back to places I have been.

Thank you for your reply Wayne.

Since your nephew's name is XXXXX XXXXX his child's birth certificate, he currently has no parental rights. 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 regarding the child.

Fortunately once paternity is established, both the father and the mother will have equal rights to custody of the child.

Therefore, the first thing that your nephew must do is establish paternity. To establish paternity your nephew must file a paternity action in the district court where his child resides or have the mother sign a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity.

I hope this helps.I would be glad to continue our conversation and respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.

How can he get her out of his house that's in his name only. What about a restraining order.


He can obtain a restraining order and have her removed immediately if he is in fear of physical harm. He can also file an eviction action after providing her with 30 days written notice. However it is important to note that since your nephew's name is XXXXX XXXXX his child's birth certificate, she has the sole right to take the child
