Does the father have any child custody rights to my daughter? Posted on May 13, 2011

I'm a mother and I have full custody of my daughter I had to serve 5 days in jail so I gave power of attorney to my mother. The father of my child is not in my daughter's life. The father wasn't there to sign the birth certificate when my daughter was born. Resently he claimed he had himself put on the birth certificate while I did my 5 days in jail without doing a DNA test. Does the father have any rights to my daughter if this is true? Also if my mom has power of attorney and anything was to happen to me would the father be able to take my daughter away from my mother?
