My friend just recently had a child and the father was not present for the birth to sign the certificate or any documentation for that matter.
She has never contested him being the father, and even brought her son to visit him, etc. More recently she had dropped her son off to visit and when returning to pick him up, the father refused to give him to her unless she moved back in with him and his new girlfriend (I know..)
If a court has never deemed him the father, is this guy breaking any laws? If so, what's the first move my friend should take to bring this through the proper channels?
