Fathers’ Rights and Paternity Actions

Many parties can benefit when the paternity of a child is legally established through a paternity test.

  • The child’s biological father can gain parental rights, including visitation, and have a legal say in the child’s upbringing.
  • Men who are not related to the child can prove that they have no legal obligation.
  • The child’s right to know his or her father is the most important benefit of all.

Fighting for Fathers’ Rights

During pregnancy, an unwed father’s rights are virtually non-existent unless they are voluntarily granted to the father by the mother. After a child is born, fathers have legal rights, but they must aggressively fight for them.

Remember, unless you legally establish the paternity of your child, you have no say in his or her upbringing — even if you have lived together in the same home as a family unit for years and financially supported the child. The child’s mother can legally move away with the child / children without your knowledge or consent; you do not even have the right to visit your child.

Children’s Rights to a Father

California law recognizes that it is in the child’s best interest to have an ongoing emotional and financial relationship with both biological parents. Establishing paternity is the first step to achieving this goal.
