What rights to unwed fathers have?

Unwed Fathers

Unwed fathers have few rights concerning their children. An unwed father does not have the right to require the mother of the child to obtain his consent or notify him before undergoing an abortion. If the mother decides to bear and keep the child, however, the unwed father will be required to pay child support if a court determines or he acknowledges that he is the father; in addition, he has the right to visitation with his child and may seek custody.
