The guardian ad litem for the biological father shall complete the investigation of the interests of the biological father within twenty days after appointment unless the court finds reasonable cause to extend the time period. The court shall hold a hearing as soon as practicable to determine whether the child was born out of wedlock, to determine the identity of the biological father, if possible, and to determine the rights of the biological father. The court may exercise its contempt powers with respect to any individual who admits having knowledge of information regarding the paternity of the child but who refuses to disclose that information to the guardian ad litem or to the court.
