I have been in a verbally and emotional abusive relationship with the father of my children. He has only seen the oldest daughter 5 times in her whole 5 years of life. He was not there for her birth and has abused her as well. The relationship ended. I am left with the harsh after life of abuse and so was our oldest daughter. He can't even tell you the name of the younger daughter. What rights does he have as far as custody or visitation go? Is it legal for him to come into the childrens lives after 4 years of no acknowledgement to them? There was a paternity test for the older child proving he is the father but he has never signed a birth certificate of either daughter.

Sorry to say, but he has just as much right to his child that the paternity test was done for as you do.

The younger one that has never had a paternity test done he has no rights if he isn't on the birth certificate, he is not considered the father. The older daughter that paternity was established for, he has 50% of the rights for should he ever decide to get them.

If paternity has been established, the courts should have ordered a new birth certificate to be issued reflecting his name on it as the father.

always remember, if you sue for support, then they have rights. Courts will always give parents, mother or father, second, third and fourth chances if they decide later on, even after years to be apart of their childs life.
