I am trying to get full custody of my son. He is five years old and his father signed the birth cert. but doesn't have anything to do with my child. My child calls and he ignores his calls. I want him off the birth cert. and all rights to be mine. How do I go about this?

Speak to a lawyer. You will have to have the father sign his rights away. Unfortunately, he has to do it voluntarily--you can't force him to do it, so if he chooses not to, you're stuck with him. Just a note, does he pay child support? A lot of times if the dad doesn't care to be involved anyway, they won't want to pay child support and will be more than happy to sign over their rights. Just remember that if he does sign his rights over, you cannot collect child support, so make sure you don't need the financial support for your child before you go through with it.
