Dads rights


#1

uh yes, he has rights but he needs to seek a lawyer to get everythign written in writing (visitation schedule, etc). If he is paying CS he will have no problem getting visitation (pending on his reputation as well). When CS was addressed, this should have been addressed as well. My hubby had this probelm when his daughter was younger (the mother tried to yank him around and told him when he COULD see his daugher and on HER terms…and he always had to go to her house to see her). As soon as lawyers got involved, the visitation was quickly resolved and he has had regular visitation since then.

If the child’s mother is denying visitation then his best bet would be to contact an attorney and have them contact her and see if they can work out a custodial arrangement. If they cannot work something out then his option would be file an action in court.

Generally mediation is mandatory when a child custody claim is filed unless the parties are exempted from mediation. Thank you.

a freind of mine has a child with a woman but they were never married. she is only letting him see the child if he comes to her house. he cant leave with the child at all… he cant take the child home with him either. the child is 5 months old. he goes over there once a weeks for a couple of hours. what rights as the baby’s dad does he have. does he need to file custody papers or does she have all the control over when he can and cont see the child…
he does pay 600 a month in child support, she doesnt work at all and lives in a house with her mother.
