What Are My Rights as a Father?
In many circumstances, it is seen as the best interest of the child to maintain relationships with both parents. According to New Jersey law, fathers' rights include the right to:
- Pursue custody/visitation time
- Provide child support/obtain child support (if the custodial parent)
- Make decisions concerning the child and their upbringing
A father also has equal rights as the child's mother to retain legal and / or physical custody. Courts are required to determine custody based on many factors, such as the prior relationship that each parent had with the child or children.
