What Are My Rights as a Father?
As a father, you have certain parental rights and responsibilities. In New York, a mother and father’s rights over a child are equal. That means the court cannot prefer mother’s in custody cases.
Your rights as a parent can be divided into two main categories, including:
- Rights of custody
- Rights of decision-making
In the event of a divorce or legal separation, child custody will be determined based on the best interests of the child. This principle governs decisions related to whom the child will live with and what visitation rights the non-custodial parent will have. A parent’s access to their child will only be restricted if the judge has reason to believe that a parent poses a danger to a child.
Many custody cases result in joint legal custody, meaning that both parents maintain the right to decide major issues for their child. This includes decisions about the education, health, and welfare of the child.
