Establishing paternity as an unmarried father

In North Carolina, an unmarried mother has sole legal and physical custody of a child when the child is born. Even if the unmarried mother and father are together, the man has no legal rights over the child without establishing paternity. An unmarried father will have to establish paternity if he wants custody or visitation time with the child.

Allegations of child neglect should be taken very seriously

Raising a child with someone to whom you are no longer romantically connected can be an enormous challenge. This is especially true if you don't trust that person or have a healthy co-parenting relationship. Under these circumstances, fights can erupt regularly and motions to modify custody orders can be an ever-present threat.

The case makes for an easy headline; the shock value is apparent. But the legal nuances are, to a large extent, being ignored.
