How do I get parentl rights of my child if the mother did not list me on the birth certificate?

You have to file a petition to establish paternity... we can help you with that if you call us at 602 462 1004
You can file a Petition to Establish Paternity and also file for Custody and Visitation with the Superior Court. You can hire an attorney to do this for you or it is something that you can do yourself. Most courts have forms and Maricopa County has a Self Help area.
You need to file a Complaint in Paternity, which will establish your rights. We also could contact Mother even prior in an attempt to resolve parenting issues.
We can certainly help you consider and then pursue your options. This is obviously a very important matter, and you should not go in alone.
One of our attorneys can explain the issues and procedures better in person. As you can imagine, there is too much to cover via email. We offer free 1/2 hour consultations, in which we can discuss your matter in detail.
Please call us directly to discuss the specifics of your matter, or contact my assistant Alicia or my paralegal Jennifer to schedule your free 1/2 hour consultation.
