In Minnesota, if the father is present at the child’s birth, both parents signed a “Recognition of Parentage,” which serves to establish paternity for the purpose of addressing Child Support. However, a father has no legally enforceable rights to that child unless ordered by the Court. The parents can agree to a parenting plan and file that agreement with the Court, but until this agreement is part of a Court Order, the mother has sole legal and physical custody of the child.
