  • Seeking primary or joint custody
  • Child support establishment, review and enforcement actions

What Rights Do Fathers Have in North Carolina?

If you are a father, or if you even may have a father’s rights case, here is what we want you to know:

  • You may take legal action to establish paternity of your child
  • There is no maternal or gender preference in North Carolina family court
  • The court may award custody of the child to both parents or to either parent
  • Even if the mother doesn’t want you to be involved in your child’s life, you can take legal action to get a court order to be a parent to your child
  • If a court order isn’t followed, you can ask the court to enforce the order

Fathers have important rights. However, they must exercise their rights. How they go about pursuing their rights is key to the outcome in their case, and ultimately their relationship with their child. A father must understand their rights and what to do to achieve a favorable outcome.

As a father in the court system, you need a capable advocate who is on your side. We are proud to represent fathers. Not only do you want paternity, child custody and visitation established, but you want to exercise your rights fully. We understand what steps to take and how to prepare a legal strategy.

We invite you to contact us for a personalized consultation regarding your individual situation.

Visitation Rights for Fathers

Whether you are unmarried or married at the time you begin your case, you have the right to be a parent. Visitation is the time that your child is directly in your care.

Establishing paternity is typically for the purpose of creating a custody and visitation schedule. A court takes many factors into account including the needs of the child and the circumstances of each parent. Our team can explain your options for getting favorable visitation rights. Whether you go to court or negotiate an agreement, we can represent you at all stages.

Can a mother deny a father access in North Carolina?

If there is an established custody and visitation schedule, a mother cannot deny a father access in North Carolina except in extreme situations when it would endanger the child. Until paternity and a visitation schedule are established by the court, the mother determines access to the child.

To have the legal right to access your child, if the mother refuses, you must establish paternity and a court order. Establishing paternity results in a court order that you are the legal father of the child. Then, the court orders visitation. Until that happens, the mother decides who may see the child.

Establishing paternity is the way that you can see and be a parent to your child. We can pursue your case quickly and thoroughly.
