Hello,

Thank you for your question. I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

Prior to the birth of the child, the "father" has no rights at all.

Once the child is born, an unmarried father has no parental rights unless he establishes legal paternity

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 is considered a legal stranger to the child

I would be glad to respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.
