Understanding a Father's Rights

Framingham Father's Rights Lawyer

What Are My Rights as a Father?

Fathers face numerous obstacles when it comes to asserting their rights with regards to child custody, child support, paternity, and other family law matters. It is for that reason that Barach Law Group LLC can assist you with establishing paternity and acting as your advocate. You should know what you are entitled to receive, as well as what critical decisions and plans in which you should be involved.

Sometimes, the decisions made by your ex or the other parent may be contrary to your wishes. You have rights and responsibilities are, and we can advise you on these so that you can take pride in caring for your child.

How Do I Defend My Legal Rights as a Father?

The courts have traditionally favored the mother when it comes to child custody or child support. Although this mindset has changed somewhat in recent years, fathers are often still discounted in several ways. The first step is to establish paternity to verify that you are the child’s legal father. By signing the birth certificate, the father acknowledges that he is the biological father and the one to assume legal responsibility. Next would be to file the Petition to Establish Paternity, so the courts can formally acknowledge the father's rights.

Once paternity has been established, you are entitled to the following:

  • Custody and visitation rights
  • The right to contest or petition for the relocation of your child
  • The right to modify child custody, child support, and other terms if there are changes in life circumstances
  • The responsibility of providing emotional as well as financial assistance for the children
