The Role of the Birth Certificate in Fathers' Rights

If you signed your child's birth certificate, you acknowledged that you are the biological father, which also makes you legally responsible for the child. Legal responsibility makes you accountable for the financial support of the child but not necessarily for physically caring for the child if you are not married to the mother. If you desire to have a more active role in raising the child, however, you will want to file a petition to establish paternity with the court.

This process will set parameters for your rights to access to the child, including time-sharing arrangements and decision-making criteria. The court will prioritize the best interests of the child in setting these parameters, which usually involves equitable time with both parents. The petition process will also establish child support requirements.

Importance of Hiring Your Advocates

Fathers' rights look different for married fathers versus unmarried fathers, so make sure you talk to a knowledgeable family law attorney about your specific circumstances. Our firm seeks to help clients develop a working parenting plan that protects each party's rights. As a father, you and your child should have reasonable time to build a relationship with one another.
