What does Missouri law say about fathers' rights?

Our firm is dedicated to protecting the rights of all parents and finding solutions to some of the most complex family law matters. When it comes to fathers' rights, it takes complete knowledge of Missouri law to fully understand how to help fathers seek rightful visitation and custody. We have the experience and ability to deftly navigate the most complex of paternity and custody cases.

In most cases, biological fathers have the right to visitation or partial custody of their children. Whether it is because the parents were unmarried at the time the child was born or the mother is simply denying the rights of the father, matters can be quite complex if paternity was not established at birth. Asserting one's parental rights may require the assistance of a lawyer who will fight for a father's best interests. 

Unmarried parents have the same rights as parents who are married. When paternity is in question, there are steps that can be taken to resolve disputes and establish a working visitation, custody and support order. Many complications can arise when making arrangements for a father to have access to his children, but our team knows this, and we will explore every available avenue on behalf of the father.

Fathers' rights are a complicated issue. When custody, visitation or child support disputes arise, we know how to properly evaluate the situation, identify possible solutions and seek the outcome that benefits both our client and his children. Fathers have rights, and we will tenaciously fight to protect all rights granted under Missouri law.
