Traverse City Attorneys Helping To Establish Fathers' Rights

Michigan law is quite clear on fathers' rights. Men who father children have as many rights as birth mothers. Once a father's paternity has been established, he has the right to be involved in his child's life, including visitation, child custody and child support.

We represent fathers who wish to claim their rights of paternity, and fathers who wish to object. We also represent mothers and grandparents who want to establish paternity in order to receive child support.

If you have questions about fathers' rights, we recommend you consult with an experienced family law attorney. The law firm of Amberg, Amberg & Williams has been providing personal service, reliable advice and effective representation to clients throughout Michigan since 1975, including fathers' rights.

The Rights And Responsibilities That Come With Establishing Parentage

Establishing parentage creates an important blood tie to your child, and gives you important rights, including parenting time, and a say in the child's medical care, schooling and religious instruction.

Establishing yourself as the legal father also gives your child inheritance rights to your estate plus access to your Social Security and veteran's benefits.

When a child is born out of wedlock, a father and mother may choose to sign an affidavit of parentage form or go to court to determine fatherhood. In that case, either parent may request genetic testing, which is used to establish fatherhood with nearly 100% accuracy.

The Rights Of Grandparents

Recent Michigan law supports the rights of grandparents to be an important part of their grandchildren's lives. Our lawyers represent grandparents seeking visitation as well as those bringing paternity claims in order to win child support.

Claims can be brought in Michigan as well as out of state. In either case, the alleged father is declared the father by default if he does not object.
