If you dont put the fathers name on the birth certificate does he or his family have rights to the child?

Yes, they will have rights to the child. All the father has to do is request a DNA test. If it shows that he is the father of the child, then he and his family can have rights to the child.

If the father truly wants anything to do with his child, he can go to court and request a DNA test, but if he doesn't want anything to do with the child, like not wanting to pay child support, I doubt he will want a test.

My sis just had a baby last year and did not have to list father. Although if you need to apply for assistance (chips Medicaid or mtn heart then I think you have to give name of father... Try calling the hospital or the DHHR.

I figure almost everyone will have the list the name of the dad (if they know it lol) because most single moms do not have the means to take care of the child without some sort of assistance.

How much does it cost for the father to go to the court house and get a DNA test?

I looked it up for WV and it says the DNA test starts at $245.

To get a court ordered DNA test, the father can go to the courthouse and pay about $30 for the papers and then take them back to the courthouse so they can file them and make a hearing date. At the hearing, the judge will order the DNA test and the clerk will give another date to come back to see the results.
why

why would a woman do that do a child if the father does not want anything to do with the child. A lot of men have moved on with their life by the time the mom sorts out who the father actually is. In other words, she was having sex with multiple partnets usually without the father knowledge, and got prego without knowing who the father is, untill all the men she was with are tested (pathetic) and by the time she sobers up enough to know which ones she might narrow it down to the father has moved on and wants nothing to do with what he was tricked into. So even if his name is not on the bith certificate, the woman can demand DNA tests until she sorts out who the father is and he will still have to pay child support even if he don't want anything to do with the baby. Which is usually the case when there have been multiple partners behind his back. Can you blame him, who would want a constant reminder of this the rest of his life. Let him pay his child support and move on for the child's sake. Maybe someday the child's mother will meet a man who is willing to accept both her and her child. But usually in a case where the nother is not even sure who the father is, it just makes things worse to force the issue of putting his name on the birth certificate. Think of the child's future not just your own selfish reasons.

Seems to me this happened to you, and no, not all women have multiple sex partners. What about those that are married and divorce, and the father all of a sudden "pretends" his kids don't even exist. No birthday cards or gifts, Christmas, no phone calls, etc? So don't go blaming women because some men can just be just as bad.

Yeah I surely did not have any other partners..and he took off while I was pregnant! I booted his butt and would not let him come back! My son has a good Dad now who has been with him for 10 years..some men are not fit Dad's! He left his first wife when the daughter was 1 too..so he basically screwed over both his kids..

I'm glad for you and your son. It takes a special man to accept someone's else's child as their own. My fiancee is the same way. He thinks of my 2 sons as his.

always two sides to a story - sometimes it is better for the kids if a man and woman can't act grown up enough and get along enough to have visitation with the children. At times one parent or the other just makes things too difficult so someone has to move on. Lots of times one or the other (or both) are in such denial that nothing will ever make it ok for the kids to be able to deal with the problems the parents have and visitation just makes things worse. Sometimes the kids are old enough to know how to use a telephone, mail a card, or show their love even when they have to hide it from one parent or the other. Sometimes kids get so disturbed and brain washed by one parent or the other that they actually have been taught the absent parent is so bad they should hate him (and that is intentionally done by some parents so they canb say "see he/she don't care about you they don't even know you exist. Some parents just need to grow up and think of the children instead of using them to do evil things to one another. Not just one parent but both. It is hard for a man to care about children who act like they hate him.

sometimes men do that - they are not mature enough to deal with it when they find out their ex-wi9fe has having affairs behind their back and just want to forget the whole marriage existed. Not saying you ever had an affair during your marriage but some men can't deal with a cheating spouse and when they find out there were multiple affairs they can't ever get over that. They are not at all like women, we forgive and go on. I know a man who found out about several affairs and he just left the state and never came back.

been there done that. sometimes the man "forgets" his children and moves on after a divorce because the guardian parent has so much hate that they actually convince the children the absent parent is to be hated and that they are such a bad person, they do not deserve to be respected. In a situation where the children can sense this hate from the adult in charge, they often begin to hate the other parent for no good reason other than seeking the approval of the guardian parent. I have seen children tell their parent that they hate him, only want to see him for gifts and on their birthday or christmas and kick him spit in his face and tell him "Mom is right you are a no good SOB." Constantly tell him he is no good no matter how good he treated them and make life as miserable as possible just because they have been conditioned to hate him. The card sending and telephone calls, etc. goes both ways, I have seen kids that never call the absent parent unless they want something or it gets near a birthday or christmas, that never even say thank you when they get cards or presents so he don't even know if they got them or not. After so much of this why would a parent want to see children that have been so warped they may even make up a story that he sexually molested them. Maybe he feels those aren't children, those are people he don't evfen know anymore.

A biological father is not going to man up and claim the child. Your question is hypothetical?

What do you mean he wouldn't want anything to do with a child he was "tricked" into having? Anytime you have sex there is a possible pregnancy that could happen as a result. There is no trick to it.

I'm sure there are women just as men that are no good parents. Some men have bad things happen to them from a woman and some women have bad things done to them by men. The mature parents teach their kids right from wrong and don't make excuses for not seeing their kids, and they don't talk bad about the other parent. But the parent that is most stable deserves the custody of the kids.
