Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
The biological father will need to hire an attorney and file a "paternity action" in the county court where the child resides.The court has the power to issue a custody order to grant this biological father time with the child. And they may do so, if the father can prove1. He is the biological father
2. Visitation with him would be in the best interest of the child.Timeframe? Really depends on how the mom and dad (the legal dad) respond. IF they agree? Then it is easy. IF they contest this, the fight could be protracted (could last many months).Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
