My question involves paternity law for the State of: Tennessee
I have a five month old baby. His biological father is married to another woman. We have never been married and haven't been in a relationship with him my whole pregnancy. He didn't help me to pay any medical bills while I was pregnant, and never gave me any money for a child. He simply doesn't have any money because he never works.
I did not let him come to hospital and his name is not on a birth certificate. But I let him and his parents to see baby since he was born.
I'm a foreigner and I don't want him to have right forbid me to take my baby back to my country if I decide to leave US.
I want to understand my situation better. What if he decides to put his name on a birth certificate... will it cost him a lot of money to do it through the court? If I get married and my husband would adopt the baby does he still have a right to establish paternity? If he goes to the court and I leave the US before the decision is made will I have any problems later? Can he still do anything if I move to the different state?
