In our previous blog post, we discussed how it is possible to challenge paternity in Maryland. This post discussed the options that a person who isn't the baby's father has to handle the situation. If you know that you are the baby's father, you should take action to assert your rights as the child's father. We can help you to learn about these options so that you can start a meaningful relationship with your child.
Child custody orders are very important when you aren't with your child's mother. These orders give you the basis to see your child. It also gives you a schedule for times when you can see your child, which includes the schedule for holidays and other important days.
It is also possible for you to have some input into what decisions are made for your child. Finding out what options you have for being able to make these decisions is another consideration when you are working on a child custody matter. You might want to have a say in your child's education or health care decisions. Be sure that this is included in the order if you want to be able to be a part of these decisions.
We know that all of this might be a lot to think about. We can help you to learn what Maryland law says about your rights. Once we know what you want to do, we can help you make and execute a plan that will get you started on the path to being part of your child's life as a loving father.
