WOMEN DO YOU KNOW THIS?!?!

Yesterday my friend and I were having a debate. She swears that her child's father has joint custody because he's on the birth certificate, but they are unmarried.... WRONG! I am not married to my child's father, we had to pay 650 to have the DNA Dyinostic Center do a paternity test so he could have joint custody.
So if you were a unwed mother at the time of your child's birth and you haven't gotten a DNA test done YOU HAVE SOUL CUSTODY OF YOUR CHILD!
Didn't know if you all knew this this is what the health department told me when we went to get her birth certificate.

Depends on state..... Also if your legally married when you have a baby but your husband is not the father... LEGALLY he is responsible for the baby. At least here in MA

Pretty sure you don't own your kid's soul.

And if joint custody is working, why does it matter?

I live in Ohio. Even if the father gets a DNA test, he still doens't have any custody. He has to take the mother to court and get it awarded legally.

We had 60 dys after birth to get the PT done if we waited longer then 60 days we would've had Togo to court! This is in IN though lol


Quoting KayelynnsMama:
