Unmarried Parents


Not married? Family law is much more than just divorce. One question we commonly answer is:

What are my rights as an unmarried parent/father?


Child custody cases largely play out in similar fashion regardless of marital status.
The same laws that govern parenting plans, child support, visitation, and the rest apply whether the parents are married or not.

When deciding on child custody, courts consider the same factors in cases where the parents are divorcing, dissolving a domestic partnership, or otherwise separating. In the end, the best interests of the child take precedence over all other concerns.
