Perhaps. If no previous court orders exist you need file a Petition to Establish Paternity. And you would have to allege why the it's in the child's best interest that the father should have majority timesharing. If there is a previous order you need to file a Supplemental Petition to Modify timesharing and visitation. Either way you have a heavy burden of proof. You should at least consult with an attorney in your area.
For sure you need a lawyer. Each case is based upon the overall best interests of the child, and the case must be presented properly. You have a good case.
