The most important thing that you can do is start early and fast. If the mother of your child hasn’t given birth yet, you need to show that you are interested in the child’s well being. You should offer to pay for the costs of childbirth as far as you are able to do so. If you can’t afford all of it, offer to pay what you can. Once the child is born, you need to offer to pay for food, diaper, clothes, car seat and other things. You need to spend time with your child. If you ignore the situation, it will get worse. Look, being an unmarried dad can be tough unless you exercise your rights to your child, you could lose them.
The next thing you need to do quickly is get a paternity order in place in the Utah District Court. You should contact a father’s rights lawyer in Utah to make sure that you get it done right. You need a court order that allows you either joint custody or at least minimum parent time (you can get more if you are willing to fight for it) — you must get going right away.
Okay, next – you should be documenting these things so you can get it to your attorney. Show text messages and emails showing that you are trying to support the child, showing your visits with the child, etc.
