The father of a child born out of marriage can petition the court to establish and enforce his rights as a father. Some of these rights include custody, visitation and the right to support the minor child.
The process involves filing a Petition to Establish a Parental Relationship along with filing an Order to Show Cause seeking orders for these rights. A DNA test can be done to prove whether or not the father is the biological father of the child. The court can make temporary orders regarding custody and visitation of the minor child once paternity has been established. These orders can include custody, visitation and support for the minor child.
