Paternity

Written By: - Apr• 23•17

An unmarried father may not have the same visitation and child custody rights as a married Father. If you fathered a child and wish to have sole child custody, shared custody or visitation rights regarding that child your child custody case may be more complicated than if you were the mother.

 

If the father wants the right to play an active and constructive role in his child’s life, a child visitation lawyer will be needed to assist you in determining the best way for you to proceed. The unmarried father possibly does not even have an automatic right to custody of his child if the Mother dies

 

If the single dad’s name is not appearing on the birth certificate, he would have limited or no rights regarding a child. In this case, the urgency of a paternity action and DNA test cannot be overstated. There is the need for a family child custody expert immediately to help in this case.
