Rights and obligations of unmarried parents

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child support on Sunday, January 3, 2016.

When you have a child and are not married, you probably have a lot of concerns regarding the rights you have, as well as the rights of the other biological parent. Because as time passes and affections are formed and developed by additional family members on each parent’s side, it could be very beneficial to negotiate terms of child custody, support and visitation early on between the father and mother.

Once you are proven to be the parent of the child, it is important to understand that not only do you have obligations, you also have rights.

A family law attorney knowledgeable in child support and custody involving unmarried parents will be helpful in negotiating your parenting time, custody rights as well as making arrangements for child support.

If you are in Boone County and have an interest in the custody of your child, it is important to understand how child custody is determined and that it focuses primarily on what is in the child’s best interests. These terms can be revisited and modified and are always negotiable.

The attorneys at Stange Law Firm, PC, will work for your rights from establishing paternity for fathers through DNA testing, to scheduling parenting time, to custody and support determinations. They will do all of this with your interests as well as the child’s best interests in the foreground.

If you have a child and are unmarried, trust in Stange Law Firm, PC, to negotiate and fight if need be, to secure your ongoing relationship with your child as well as a fair agreement on child support.
