Okay, so I've read that until the "father" has a paternity test, he has no parental claim to the child, but he can get one without my consent, and I'm responsible for half of the cost. I've also read that if he isn't on the birth certificate, he doesn't have rights. What's true? I don't really want him to have rights because he hasn't done anything for me or the child thus far, and I just want him out of my life. He has anger problems, and drug problems, and no job. What do I have to do to make it so he can't just decide that he wants custody or something?
