Understanding Your Legal Rights

If paternity is a matter that is contested, you must first establish paternity - that is your status as the child's legal father. The courts cannot allow you to take responsibility, nor grant rulings on child custody or visitation until this has been made clear. You can do this by taking part in DNA testing and other factual evidence to support your claims.

Once paternity has been established, you are entitled to the following rights and responsibilities:

  • The right to visitation
  • The right to custody
  • The right to modify any terms due to a change in life circumstances
  • The responsibility of providing financially and emotionally for your children
