So was a paternity action ever done establishing your parental rights and time sharing with the minor child? Were you ever married to the mother? More information is needed and I would recommend you consult with a local family law attorney in your area directly.
Many great attorneys can be found here on Avvo and offer free consultations. Good luck.
