Protecting Father’s Rights in Orlando
If a child’s parents are not married, parental rights are not automatically “presumed.” While the law is written in a way that treats both parents equally, the truth of the matter is the courts are not immune from human error, and often times fathers face a number of additional challenges establishing their legal parental rights.
Fathers’ rights include the ability to contribute to decisions regarding:
- Visitation & custody
- Child support
- Healthcare & medical decisions
- Education & school choice
- Religious upbringing
- Relocation (out of town, out of state)
If a child is born to unmarried parents, they will not have a legally-established father. Having a name on the child’s birth certificate is not enough. Establishing paternity is sometimes a confusing and difficult process, particularly if the other parent refuses to admit or assist you with establishing paternity because they are attempting to alienate you as a parent or otherwise prevent you from being able to be a part of your child’s life. It’s strongly advised you seek legal options by contacting our Orlando family law attorneys and getting help with your case as soon as possible.
