What Are the Child Custody Laws in California for Fathers?

Fortunately, when it comes to child custody cases, California no longer favors the mother automatically, even when the children are young. In fact, under CA state law both the mother and father have equal rights to the custody of their child or children. The family courts consider all relevant factors and decide based on what is in the children's best interests.

What Are Father's Family Law Rights?

Father’s rights can extend beyond just custody and visitation. For example, fathers have the right to be consulted before their child is put up for adoption. They have the right to take time off of work to raise their children. And they have the right to parenting time without interference.

Suppose you were married to your child's mother. In that case, paternity is automatic so if you are fighting for custody of your children in a divorce, know that the courts no longer assume that a mother will get custody. However, you would face different challenges if you were never married to your child's mother.

If you are an unmarried father, you must establish paternity legally. Even if you can prove that you are the child's biological father, if you were never married to the child's mother, you won't legally have any rights or responsibilities for your child unless paternity is lawfully established.

Establishing paternity is necessary for:

Once paternity is established by the court, you will have all of the legal rights and responsibilities of a parent. This means you can request child custody and visitation orders to visit with your son or daughter legally. You will also be responsible for paying child support, and you will have to pay for your children's uninsured healthcare expenses.
