Unmarried couples, children out of wedlock and fathers' rights

Florida residents may find it interesting to learn that over 40 percent of children born in the U.S. are to unmarried couples. When it comes to child custody and visitation rights, generally unmarried fathers have to fight hard in the family court system to get a chance to see their children and be afforded the most basic parental rights.

Florida child custody case to test jurisdiction

Father seeks custody of child

When it comes to children born to an unmarried couple, questions regarding paternity, DNA testing, child support and custody, visitation rights and more may arise. In general, where possible, it is in the best interest of the child to have on-going contact with both parents. However, in certain cases, such as those involving domestic abuse, drug abuse or sexual assault, contact with one or both parents may be detrimental to the well-being of the child.
