you will have to go to court to get visitation or custody. Do you pay child support?

You have JUST AS MANY RIGHTS to the child as the mother. If she is not allowing you any rights, take her sorry butt to court and get those rights in writing. Men get a bad rap when often it is the woman who is the root of the problem.

No they dont. When you are not married, even though the father shares the same lady name as the child he is not considered the LEGAL father. He must file for his paternal rights.

It takes two to make a baby, and until some of you men haters can learn to put your eggs together and make a child, you need to accept that fact. A father is more than someone who is simply supposed to supply you with a monthly support check. Let them play their role instead of always trying to claim the victim.

Not every woman is trying to play the victim. If the father doesn't support the baby before they are born as well as after the mother should not feel obligated to do a single thing to make him realize what he's missing. He chose to be the fool.

Some women in this area think a man is not supporting them if he's not at home waiting on them hand and foot while constantly cuddled up with them. Don't get me wrong, there are many educated and independent women in the Batesville area. But there is just as many trashy ones that you have to see past in order to spot the ones who are wife material. You know, the ones who want more out of life than to see how fast they can trap a man.

You are exactly right. Not only that, though. Same last name, same DNA, fathers name on the birth certificate. Does not matter. He must file for his rights. Then an order of child support is established. The mother is still the custodial parent, even if the father gets his rights. Then visitation must be established. If the child is an infant, Arkansas will RARELY agree to giving the father over night privileges. That doesn't normally get granted until the child is at the age of 2. You can call any attorney in the state. They will all tell you that. ESP if the child is being breast fed as an infant. That limits visitation on an entirely different level.

Honestly....most of what Facts said is true. It mostly depends on the factors of the case. Judges aren't as sympathetic to the mothers like they once were. Especially if the father is willing, able, and ready to assume his responsibility. In cases like this, its best for the father to petition the court before the mother. And as far as visitation....that is 100% up to the Judge. If the Judge sees that you are fit, they will grant more than chart visitation.
