I have a child with my girlfriend and we are not married. she tells me all the time that she has more rights to our child than i do.

is this true that the mother has all the rights. what rights does the father have then.

A mother automatically has parental responsibility for her child from birth but there are conditions which apply to fathers gaining responsibility. These conditions can differ depending on the state that you are in as there are different principles used. For a father to gain parental responsibility he has to apply for that in a court.

If you care about her or your child talk to her and tell her you'd like to be a part of their lives.
