Mothers' Rights vs. Fathers' Rights

What Are My Rights as a Parent in Roseville, CA?

Know Your Rights

If you are a parent, then it is important for you to know your rights and what you can do if these rights are challenged by your ex-spouse or your child's other biological parent. Mothers automatically have full custody rights of a child born out of wedlock but fathers will need to sign paternity papers in order to have any rights to the child.

Without establishing paternity, a father will be unable to obtain visitation or custody rights by law. Once this is established, the court will allow visitation or custody rights based on the best interests of the child. As a father, it is important to know that you are not required to establish paternity. If you want visitation or custody rights, however, then you will need to establish paternity.

Know Your Responsibility

Whether or not you obtain visitation, you may incur the responsibility of making child support payments. These are designed to help supplement your child's mother's income so that she is able to provide food, shelter, clothing, health care, and education for your child. If you are trying to obtain certain rights regarding your biological child, then seek the legal representation of our Roseville divorce attorney as soon as possible.
