Hurting Father ... Continued


#1

Again, if you are not the child’s biological parent you do not have any parental rights–no rights to visitation. However, if you can show that your wife is unfit, then you may be able to gain custody of the child in court. Otherwise, you should try to get her to agree to allow you to spend time with the little girl in a separation agreement that addresses custody.

Good luck,

I’ve sent off the Paternity Test and I should have the results by either Thursday or Friday. If the results do in fact say that I’m not the biological father of my little girl, then do i have an possible recourse to see her? Is there anything that I can do legally so that I can continue to be a part of her life, for her to continue to be a part of my life?

If you know of anything then please let me know …
