Understanding Representation for
Mothers and Fathers
Establishing paternity holds significant benefits for fathers wishing to be involved in the lives of their children. Whether your child’s mother desires you to be an active participant in parenting or not, once you obtain family court orders, she loses the right to deny you access. Further, if you are the non-possessory parent, you can seek orders which will prohibit her from moving very far away. Further, if you are a father who has primary physical custody of your child, you may need orders granting you legal custody to prevent the mother from removing the child from your possession and/or care.
However, by determining and filing for paternity, a father accepts financial responsibility for providing child support, if he doesn’t have primary custody of the child. If a father fails to fulfill his duty in this regard, a mother can take legal action for enforcement of child support.
