What Are My Rights as a Father?

Studies have shown that children do better when both parents are involved as a nurturing influence in their lives. The guiding principle of the courts in family law matters involving children is always centered around the best interests of the child. Fathers have the right to be involved in their children's lives, interact, and spend time with them.

Father's rights can encompass many issues pertaining to:

  • Claiming and establishing paternity
  • Requesting child custody and visitation
  • Providing financial support for children
  • Collaborating on how to raise the child, including living circumstances, schools, religion, and medical treatment
