An unwed mother automatically gets full custody. When the father is placed on the birth certificate and pays child support, does he get any rights? I have full custody but father is on birth certificate and pays child support but we have never done an official visitation schedule. I want to relocate to Alaska for a job. Do I have to ask the father or the court? I was also told I would have to have a letter from the father to cross the border, is that correct? I don't want him to know where I am going and don't think I should have to tell him anything or ask his permission.I have FULL CUSTODY and there has never even been a regular visitation schedule established!!!! (He see's him when I let him) Why should the court care? Will the state of arkansas still enforce my support order? Can he file for custody and have our child returned to the state?
