My son got a girl pregnant and the baby was born this week. The parents are not going to be together. My question is this: does my son have any rights? The baby's mother omitted naming a father on the birth certificate, and also gave the baby her last name. We do not know "for sure" if the baby is his or not. A paternity test needs to be done. How does one ask the mother for consent, and is there a place that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to have the test done? Thanks so much!
