Criminal Defense Attorney
If he has been established as the father administratively by the proper execution of a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity, or has established paternity by court order, then he doesn't need to do anything further.
If none of the above is true, he can still file a petition to establish paternity with the court and have the court declare him to be the father. He will need to allege the facts you set forth above.

You have asked this over and over and the answer does not change. He needs to consult a local family law attorney.
IF YOU FOUND THIS ANSWER "Helpful" or " The Best Answer" YOU CAN THANK ATTORNEY RADDATZ BY MARKING IT SO because Avvo awards the attorney points. MS. RADDATZ is donating her time and talent by answering questions to help those in need of legal information. This is NOT a consultation and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PERSONALLY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN YOUR LOCAL AREA who has specific expertise in the area of law you are asking about.
