What Rights do Fathers Have?
In theory, fathers’ rights are no different from mothers’ rights: they are both entitled to have access to children and they are both expected to contribute materially to the child’s upbringing. As a result, both parents have the right to: • See and raise their children through custody and visitation agreements. • Make decisions about the child’s education, religion and healthcare. • File a protest if the other parent attempts to move far away with the children. • File for modifications and enforcements of the child custody and support court orders if the other parent doesn’t follow it or if circumstances significantly change.
