Paternity issue: The first issue to be resolved is whether or not this father is established as a legal father. Since the mother was unmarried, no paternity presumption applied. In California, he would have had to sign the declaration of voluntary paternity in order to be named on the birth certificate and be a legal father. If he did not sign these documents, there would have to be a judgment of his parental rights.
