Increasingly, more and more couples in Richardson are seeking help with child custody issues, even though they were never married. If you find yourself in this situation, it is essential that a lawyer be consulted to ensure that your parental rights are protected and that the best interests of the child are always upheld.
In general, when parents are not married, the mother is presumed to have the natural right to custody. However, suitability issues are always considered, and if either parent is either particularly suited or, conversely, unsuited, to have custody, the courts will take that into consideration. It is not rare that an unwed father is awarded primary custody especially if the mother is not a fit parent, but any extenuating circumstances that need to be considered should definitely be discussed at length with your Richardson Child Custody lawyer.
Of course, one of the major issues that can arise with the unmarried parents of a child is paternity. Your lawyer will be able to assist you if paternity needs to be established whether you are a mother trying to prove paternity of the father or you are a father who wants visitation rights or even partial custody of your child.
