What Are Fathers’ & Mothers' Rights?

In simple terms, the phrases “mothers’ rights” and “fathers’ rights” refer to the privileges and responsibilities that parents share in supporting and raising a child. These rights remain constant regardless of marital status, though they are not absolute. A mother or father can have their rights to their children rescinded if they should display harmful behaviors such as substance abuse, sexual abuse, or otherwise neglectful parenting.

Mothers and fathers have a right to pursue the following:

  • Adoption
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Paternity
  • Visitation

While historically mothers have received preferential treatment in child custody situations, changes in the legal landscape have made it so both parents are now given equal consideration in the eyes of the law. It is not uncommon, however, for a parent to be alienated from their children by the other parent after a divorce or separation. If you are a parent who has been unfairly treated following a previous divorce agreement, our team of family attorneys may be able to seek a modification to your divorce settlement and protect your rights in a court of law.
