    You need to take this up with the court. You need to obtain a court order to proclaim and protect your rights. Unwed fathers have few rights, outside of a court order. Go to court and obtain a custody order. You also need to prove your paternity, usually done by a DNA test.

    The court or the state will pay for the test.

    I'd contact your local city hall for help in where to start.

    This website os run by your NHS.

    They offer some information on paternity testing.
