What Are Mother’s Rights?

Mother’s rights are those an adoptive or biological mother has for their child. For example, mothers have the right to ask for child support. They also have parental visitation rights. Additionally, many states, such as Wisconsin, allow mothers to ask for paternity tests on behalf of their child. In this situation, the court will make the presumed father submit to DNA tests and, if determined to be the biological father, ask him to pay child support. Lastly, in terms of child custody, mothers have the right to ask the courts to terminate custody rights of the father if they have abandoned the child for a long period of time, are violent, or are abusing alcohol or drugs.

What Are Father’s Rights?

Fathers’ rights include any right that a father has to parenting time with his children. When it comes to establishing visitation, as the biological father, you are eligible to receive time with your child (as long as you don’t meet any of the termination guidelines). Ultimately, establishing paternity is important for a father to obtain the rights they deserve. With the help of our parental rights lawyer at the Will Green Law Office, you can do exactly that.

How Can Parental Rights Be Terminated?

To terminate a parent’s rights in Wisconsin, an order concerning termination of parental rights must be filled out. From there, a court sets a hearing. The summons and petition must be served to the terminating parent. It is the petitioner’s (the person filing) responsibility to serve them at least 7 days before the hearing date.
