Establish paternity to guarantee your parental rights

Fathers have many rights when it comes to their children. Fathers need to make sure they establish those rights, though. While a mother can be assumed upon a child's birth, the same isn't true about a father. As such, the best thing for a father to do is to make sure he seeks a paternity test or agrees to a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity.

Is there still a bias in custody cases?

As a father, the last thing you want to find out is that you're going to have limited time with your child because of your gender. In court, there is not supposed to be a bias against fathers. Instead, a judge is intended to look at the child custody case and to make sure that the child gets time with both parents (when it is safe to have this arrangement).

Who usually wins in a custody battle?

In divorce, there is so much to be decided and divided. Taking steps to dissolve a marriage requires considerable effort on the part of both parties. This is especially true if children are involved. If you are nervous about a potential custody battle, it is important to know that the old myth that the courts favor the children's mother just isn't accurate anymore. More and more, both moms and dads are being granted joint custody, rather than mothers receiving sole custody.
