If I take the father of my son to court for child support would he get any rights?
- Common SenseLv 76 months ago
Your son's father ALREADY HAS PARENTAL RIGHTS. And, yes, he can, at any time, petition the court for shared custody, visitation and such. Your asking for child support has nothing to do with custody and visitation.
If your son's father wants to see him, then work with him or the courts will work it out for you.
AND, remember, child support whether received or not is NOT the ticket to a father seeing his son, or not.
Child support has nothing to do with your SON's right to know his father.

Depends on judge and situation and put what is best for the child first.

Get any rights?
He already HAS rights.
It is HIS child also.
You made sure of that.
The child support (which why haven't you done this already???) is a separate issue.

You can't ask for child support if he doesn't already have parental rights. Taking him to court won't grant him any rights he doesn't already have (and may be choosing not to exercise). But it's not uncommon for a noncustodial parent to suddenly decide they want full or shared custody rather than have to pay child support. If you want to get rid of him completely you'd have to try to strip him of his parental rights.

He ALREADY has rights.. Child support or not.

By determining paternity he would be able to gain visitation rights, if he sought them and give him the opportunity to sue for shared custody. . And visitation would be granted regardless of the custody agreement and regardless of whether or not he was up to date with child support. Deadbeat Dad's still get visitation rights.

Maybe you should have used birth control.

Of course, he'd probably get half the custody.

You mean if the court finds in your favor?
Yes, he will. You want him to support his son and not be allowed to see him?
