My babies father has never acknowledge his son birth and his name is not on the birth certificate. What do I need to do to make he has no rights to my son? I want full custody and will support my son on my own.

Petition the court and see how it goes. If the father wants rights the only way he won't have any is if the judge sees just cause to terminate them (which does happen, but not easily). Even if he doesn't want rights... some states will not allow a father's rights to be terminated unless there is another father to adopt the child. You can still have full custody w/ the father having visitation rights... and then it's up to the father on whether or not he TAKES that visitation.

You petition in court. Understand that he's got the same right, and he does not have to agree to termination of his parental rights. If he does not agree, you need to abide by court ordered visitation schedules and ask for support.
