Does an unwed mother have sole custody by default?

What kind of custody do I have? Single mother, never married. Paternity has been established and the father pays support. The father does NOT want custody or visitation. He has no official custody (No court order). Do I? I can't imagine having to file for custody. Is there a code or law that states an unmarried mothers custody of child? Do all states have codes or laws for unwed mothers and custody?
