When two parents end their relationship, regardless of their previous marital status, they each deserve to have meaningful and continued contact with their children. In addition, parents have a right to expect that both mother and father will maintain financial responsibility for their children. However, for many unmarried parents, navigating issues of child custody, visitation and child support can be confusing and stressful.
Parentage Agreements For Unmarried Parents
If you are an unmarried parent, whether or not you currently hold primary custody, it is highly advisable to consult with a qualified family law attorney to discuss your legal rights and options.
At the Law Office of Ronald L. Hendrix, P.C., we can help you create a parentage agreement that addresses all of the important issues involving your children, including:
- Physical child custody
- Child visitation and parenting time
- Legal custody and decision-making power
- Child support
