When parents, married or not, part ways, this can impact the children involved. Every family has their unique story; thus, family law issues should be treated specifically to the family going through them. With regards to unmarried couples, there could be an issue of fathers’ rights. A mother might be seeking sole custody, proving the assumed father limited visitation rights or no rights at all. A father might seek to assert his parental rights, seeking visitation or custody rights. And in some instances, a presumed father might be attempting to prove that he is not the father of the child, relieving him of any parental responsibilities.
