Fathers' rights disputes for unmarried couples

Fathers' rights are a complicated legal issue, especially when the mother and father were not married at the time of birth. When one parent disputes paternity, it can create a complex legal firestorm when determining child custody and support. Regardless of the complexity of your situation, our team has the experience needed to successfully handle any fathers' rights issue. 

In some cases, determining paternity is an essential step in determining custody and child support. If you have been requested to pay child support for a child who may not be yours, it is imperative that you seek legal help immediately. An experienced attorney can help protect your interests and assist you with any needed DNA testing. It is important to note that you do not have to dispute the actual biological paternity of a child in order to have a valid paternity concern. Paternity cases also involve Missouri fathers who simply want to have an equal role in a child's life.  

Conversely, if you have been denied visitation with your child, you will find great benefit from securing an attorney experienced in custody disputes. Even if parents were unmarried at the time of birth, a mother cannot legally prohibit a father from seeking shared custody or visitation. Our website can provide more detailed information regarding the rights of fathers in Missouri. 

Let us help you protect your fathers' rights. We can help you seek visitation, seek custody or simply make a support arrangement with the child's mother. If needed, we can also help you in cases of disputed paternity. No matter the details of your particular situation, a case evaluation is a worthwhile investment of your time.
