Fathers' Rights Archives

Your rights to full custody as a father

It is becoming increasingly common for fathers to find themselves in a situation where getting full custody is in the best interests of their children. However, many fathers believe that the odds are stacked against them when they appeal for full custody, because they think that the courts prefer that the mother is the primary custodian.

Unmarried fathers must be aware of their rights

It is becoming increasingly common for the parents of a child to be unmarried. Parents might initially intend to be an unmarried couple raising their child together; however, the problem is that if the relationship disintegrates, the father has less rights and parental security than a father who is married to the mother and intends to get a divorce.

Taking action as a victim of paternity fraud

One of the most devastating realizations as a father is to become aware that a child that you have loved and raised is not biologically yours. It is more common than people may think that a mother was in full knowledge of the true paternity of a child since conception, but had purposefully deceived people in order to gain child support or another form of support from the person she stated was the father.

How important is proof of paternity?

Proof of paternity is the establishment of the father of a child. This can be significant for many legal matters that concern the child and their parents. Just because a man's name is on a child's birth certificate does not mean that they have been legally established as the father of the child. Therefore, after a birth certificate has been signed, there can still be a quest to prove or establish paternity.
