If the birth father is not present at the birth and not on the birth certificate nor does he pay child support or have a court order of his rights, and I want to move out of state with the baby, will he be allowed to force me to come back, say if he files for a paternity test and whatnot? If I have already been moved for six months can he do anything to make me come back? If I move BEFORE the baby is born and the child is born in a different state, how does that change things? Will he have to come to me in order to file for his rights, and if he receives them, does that mean I have to move wherever he wants, or does he have to move to where I am?
