Fathers' Rights

Father's rights include the right to visit one's children, the requirement that fathers be consulted before their children are offered for adoption, and other legal matters related to men's reproductive issues and a father's relationship with his children. Many of these issues arise when fathers are not married to their child’s mother. And while it is quite controversial, some father’s rights advocates have argued for the right of a father to be involved in a woman’s decision to have an abortion if the child is his. This section includes an overview of father's rights, a primer on how a father can lose his parental rights, and more.
