What Are My Visitation Rights As A Dad?

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 12   |   Comments: 0

Visitation rights are often granted to noncustodial dads or moms.. If the parents are not married, either parent could begin the paternity determination process. The mom may be interested in establishing paternity to collect child support, while the dad may be interested in establishing paternity to gain visitation or custody rights.

Paternity can be proved easily when it is certified who the dad during the birth of the child, or in certain situations following the child's birth. Additional situations may call for a biological test to determine paternity involving the father, mother and child. Which method one should take in determining the parent will differ, discussing your options with an attorney is  a wise choice.

A court order may be required to solidify ones rights, especially in cases in which one is denied visitation rights by the custodial parent. The family law court will act in the best interests of the child in determining custody, visitation and support agreements. The court may consider the economical income of each parent, the age of the child and how much time each parent has to dedicate to raising the child. The child's own preferences are also considered.

A lawyer will be highly trained and experienced in the divorce and child custody laws of your state, so a consultation with an <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outgoing/article_exit_link');" href="http://www.california-familylawyers.com">experienced divorce attorney</a> is often very helpful in protecting your custody and visitation rights as a dad. State laws may vary from one state to another, so researching and consulting with an attorney regarding your state's laws is important.

In divorce situations, protecting one's rights as a noncustodial parent involves ensuring the proper visitation rights are granted. Make your wishes known to the court and hire experienced legal counsel to guide you through the process.
