If it has been established that you are the father, then you do have a legal right to file a motion with the court, asking for visitation or even custody. The mother has a right to go after you for child support BUT if you want to pay the least amount, you would ask the court to award shared custody of the child, so you each have the child 50% of the time and would then share in 50% of the costs, to care and support the child, financially.
