What are a father's legal rights?

As a father of a child who may not be married to the child's mother, you may wonder what your legal rights are and how to go about enforcing them. In general, biological parents have legal rights to custody and visitation of their children. While this is true, even if the parents are unmarried, the situation can sometimes get complicated quickly. As an unmarried father, it is important to understand your rights and how the family law court views child custody and visitation concerns.

Post-divorce modifications help families

Life rarely stays the same following a divorce which is why the family law process and post-divorce modifications are so important. Following a divorce, couples of families may find the need to modify a child support order or a child custody and visitation order. Alternately, one former spouse may oppose changing a child support or child custody order so it is important to understand the resources the family law process provides to help the different concerns families may face.

In general, the legal system is fluid and changes to the law are always a possibility. This is also true of the area of grandparents' rights.
