Right now my son has no rights because he is not on birth certificate or any court order granting him any rights other then child support. Mother will not take it to court cause she knows if she doesn't she has the upper hand by avoiding court. There needs to be some laws giving teen fathers rights as son as paternity is established so they can active in their child's life. I wish I had more knowledge in this area so my son could go to court without a lawyer but that is not the case. But I am learning as much as I can over Christmas break before school starts back and back to teaching. I just don't want my son to have the court say he has been absent father in his child life and his rights gone forever. Thank You off to say some prayers so this situation.
