Family Law

Where the parties are not married, the mother is considered the custodial parent of the child until the father seeks to establish paternity in a court of law. A father does not have “rights” to custody and/ or visitation of his child until he has a court order that establishes him as the father. Being named on a birth certificate or having DNA testing is not enough to establish paternity.
