fathers' rights Archives

What rights do fathers have before birth?

Most fathers don't think about the rights they have over their child before it's born. However, decisions made pre-birth can have a substantial effect on the life of your baby. As such, some fathers may want to play a part in decisions that apply to medical testing, medical procedures, and other issues during pregnancy. Disagreements can arise over these decisions, and it's not unheard of for a father to try to assert his opinions in court.

Can I claim paternity if I didn't know I had a child?

When a father isn't married, he may have to jump through some legal red tape to establish himself as the legal father of his child. If the biological mother, for example, tries to claim that someone else is the father, the biological father may have trouble claiming his parental rights. If the father is not aware of his status and not aware of the child until after the child has been born, it can present even more challenges.

Father fights for custody of twins given up for adoption

Nebraska mothers sometimes try to give their babies up for adoption without first obtaining permission from the father. However, fathers do have inherent parental rights -- if they can establish paternity -- and if this kind of situation has happened to you, you might be able to take legal action to fight for the custody of your child.
