A Father's Role? - NYTimes.com

And that “acknowledgment of paternity form” does not really give me any rights, just the responsibility of financial support. Well, it does say, “… the father should have all rights and duties regarding the child as if he had been married to the mother at the time of the child’s birth,” but in the months afterward I have not found an attorney who can explain to me that that means. Apparently, a father’s rights are undefined and can mean whatever you want it to mean for your purposes.

Appreciating Child Visitation rights, Legitimation and Paternity

The court could decide that enough proof was presented to prove paternity, and also DNA testing may be used to prove or disprove paternity in the commonwealth of Virginia.
