    2. A man acknowledging his paternity at the hospital when his girlfriend gives birth is NOT the same as legal paternity;
    3. The obligation to pay child support does not mean that a father has the right to see his children;
    4. There is a legal presumption that a child born during his "parents" marriage that the husband is the biological father.
