In the state of NC two unwed parents have a child together. If the father signs the birth certificate does this establish legal rights & custodial rights or is the mother considered the custodial parent?

Greetings, I am currently living in Costa Rica with my son,

Greetings, I am currently living in Costa Rica with my son, and for the last 8 years, his mother and I have shared custody based on verbal agreements. Things have recently shifted and i am being villainized by her family, and I believe they are scheming to take control of my son's future. I was scheduled to bring him home this weekend, but they have not responded to my need to have a clear schedule of custody sharing, and my fear is that once I return him, they will start legal action that would keep him in their possession. I want to know my rights in this matter, are you available for a consultation by phone or skype since I am not in the country.

The father of my child (please note: he has not yet

Hi, the father of my child (please note: he has not yet established his paternity with the court, we never married and he has filed to establish it but we have not had a ruling or any response from the court as of yet, although he does have proof he is the father and i filed a response accepting his claim of paternity) was arrested yesterday for possession of firearms. He is a previous felon (from 10 years ago, multiple charges). He was arrested on two counts, possession by someone with a record and a possession of unregistered firearms (there were 4 guns and 2 had the serials numbers scratched off).Previous to his arrest we have been sharing custody and he has been seeing our 5 year old on Wednesdays and on every other weekend. I don't know what he does for a living and I am scared of him, he is adamant on seeing his child and he has pressured me into giving her to him. He has a lawyer and said he will easily get 50:50 if I don't give her to him at least wed and every other weekend. I think now that he has been arrested maybe I have some hope. He got out on bail and texted me last night at 240am that he wanted to pick up Scarlett (our daughter) in the morning and I emailed back that he could not. I had to collect her from the police station yesterday and she is quite upset and confused by the entire ordeal already. To make matters worse, he won't disclose to me where he is living so I don't know where he goes when he has her, do I have a right to know? Considering that he has not established paternal rights with the court can I deny him visitation? Can I deny visitation because of his arrest? Thank you for any information you can give me on my rights and on his rights as well.

I have a restraining order and child custody case going on

I have a restraining order and child custody case going on whereby my hearing is October 9th. I was served August 11th and the first hearing was delayed due to congestion. Only thing that was discussed in 5 minutes was visitation because judge had notread either declaration so she allowed 6 hours per week and phone calls via monitors. Petitioner was adamant about no visitation before or after hearing but judge allowed due to no history of drug or domestic abuse charges in last 5 years. It was rescheduledfor September 14th but my attorney (associate) didn't realize it was Jewish holiday so my acting attorney had to ex parte anot her continuance which pushed my date another month out to October 9th. I am very upset as I am distraught about seeing my kids foronly 6 hours a week going on 2 months now when I was a stay at home Dad with a business. I have a few questions and hope that there are some type remedy for this delay. Allegations are substance abuse, verbal abuse, and essentially domestic abuse. I am wonderingif I can request in pro per a modification of child visitation to unsupervised prior to this October 9th hearing? Also I would like to establish or determine if I am in fact the father via a paternity test even though I signed birth certificates for all 3children. I have had suspicions but want to put them to rest so can at this point prior to hearing make a motion to determine paternity if I am unsure? Is it too late or not possible at this stage? I love my children and want custody of them but unsure ifanything can be done before hearing. My attorney is too busy and unresponsive most of the time. I have been dissatisfied with him from the very beginning due to his disorganization and massive accounting bill. This is why I am here trying to find out whatmy options are riget now. We have done a Depo of petitioner and it seemed very clear that she wasn't abused and children were in no harm. Is there anything I can do to see my kids sooner than October 9th as I feel alienation is occurring based on my interactionsduring visits. I thought of hiring another attorney but I am too far in with Depo done and a hearing in a few weeks. Please advise me on what I can do via court system to see my children more often. Even though I wasn't found to have abusing substances ordomestic abuse the judge suggested but NOT court ordered parenting classes, Anger management, and AA and I would be eligible for unsupervised visits.. I immediately enrolled and have even started doing drug screens. I expected to show this compliance withher suggestions on September 14th but attorney had to request that continuance until the 9th of October. I am quite upset and feel my children are being affected by parental alienation. Please provide some insight to what I can do here in Los Angeles CA tosee my children and also confirm via DNA testing that these are all my biological children. Any thoughts on my lawyer are welcomed.
