While it differs by state, it should also be noted that simply being named as the father on the birth certificate or acknowledging paternity does not grant custodial rights to the unmarried father. So, while the unmarried father may have been there from the beginning, be on the birth certificate, present at doctor visits, school functions and ais regarded as father in every way he still may have to go to court to seek parental rights and parenting time once things turn south with the mother.
