The answer to your question is dependent on your first being determined to be the biological father. Under Wisconsin law, if a child is born out of wedlock (you two weren't married), you have no legal rights to the child under paternity is established. Paternity can be established by either your both signing a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity on the state provided form and submitting to Madison, OR by either of you filing a formal paternity action in court. Once you are adjudicated as being the biological father, which in court is done by DNA testing, the court will hold a "terms hearing" and set custody, placement and support orders.
