Do unmarried fathers have any rights?

Here’s the January, 2011 update!

It’s easy to wonder whether unmarried fathers have any legal rights, but a Central Minnesota Legal Services publication available on the website of the Minnesota Fathers and Families Network is a helpful and user-friendly guide, called the “Unmarried Father’s Guide to Paternity, Custody, Parenting Time and Child Support in Minnesota”.

As the name of the publication suggests, topics covered include: Paternity,  Custody, Parenting Time and Child Support.  But the publication also addresses the Father’s Adoption Registry,  Moving Out of State, Naming the Child and How a Recognition of Parentage (ROP) Differs from a Paternity Order from a Court, and other helpful topics.

  1. unfortunatly not. I am a paying father of child support to my daughter. & the only way the courts will let me have ” Parenting Time ” , is to litterly pay out of my pocket , to a lawyer????
    sad , minnesota needs to grow up……now im only good for payin to be a parent. Instead of being physically in my daughters life.
