Of course he has rights. And that baby has the right to know his/her father.

Who cares if HE has rights?! The CHILD has a right to know and have a relationship with his/her father.

If you're asking if he can just take off with the baby... I'm thinking that would wind him up in a lot of trouble since there isn't currently any legal document stating him as the father... and if he's in the US illegally.. taking off with the baby would probably be a pretty stupid move.

Your niece should speak to a lawyer about establishing paternity (since he wasn't put on the bc already), custody, visitation, and child support asap.
