Re: Fathers Rights if Not on Birth Certificate
Was there any action to prove paternity? If not, legally, there is no father.
What rights does the father have if his name is not on the birth certificate?
If he is not the legal father, he has no rights until such time he is adjudicated to be the father. It was not kidnapping for you to take your fatherless child out of state.
Possibly. If he files to have paternity proven, he can ask the courts to not allow you to take the child out of state. It would be up to the courts to allow or deny the move. Depending on the reasons, you might find yourself staying in Colorado, or, at least your child anyway. If the court orders the child remain in Colorado, you could leave but the child would have to stay.
I would like to move out of state with her, is there anything he can do to stop me?
by whose order or by what right?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
