Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to get your son an attorney and the attorney has to file a petition for paternity in the court. Once the court rules he is the father, then the court issues an order of paternity which is sent to the Vital Records division and the birth record is changed to reflect your son being the father.
As part of this process, the attorney would file a motion for custody/visitation and support, to seek to get your son his rights to see the child. Once you get the court order in NV for paternity, the attorney would get the court order filed in OH to recognize it and they would make OH vital records change the birth certificate.
If you are going to have custody of the child, the attorney would also file the motion to get the court to grant you custody as well. These motions are all part of the paternity case.
