“If my child’s father did not sign his birth certificate, does he have any rights to my child?”
Yes, he is still the father, whether he signed the birth certificate or not.    Think about it Рif when you were born, the hospital did not issue a birth certificate at all Рwould that mean your mother was not your mother, and had no rights to you?
