Looking Out For Your Rights As A Parent

Looking Out For Your Rights As A Parent

your rights cos cob ct

As a parent, you are responsible for the upbringing of your child. That can include many things, such as a safe place to live, proper nutrition, and quality education, and unfortunately, within our society those things can all require the right financial tools. This means that if you and the other parent have split up, then you may be required to pay monthly child support to the other parent in order to make sure that your child has what they need to reach adulthood in a safe and secure manner. You also have your rights as a parent.

At Charles & Concilio, P.C., we know that your child is the most important thing in the world to you. That’s why we want to help families to develop stable strategies for custody, and the creation of a parenting plan can help. This is a signed document that is agreed to by both parents, and it helps to put some important subjects into writing. When it is time to talk about custody, talk to our team about all of your options in the state of Connecticut. Give us a call today!

Establish Your Rights With Trusted Legal Counsel

For some families, discussion of custody starts with establishing parentage. In our state, the courts assume that the spouse of a married woman is the father of a child, but there are situations where that might not be the case. If there are any questions about paternity, it is helpful to talk to a trusted family attorney about your next steps.

There are a few different ways that your rights and paternity can be established, starting with an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. This is a signed document that states who each of the parents are, and if you both agree, then it can be a help for your family. Sometimes, additional research is necessary for the courts to make a determination, and an attorney is a good place for information about that topic, as well.

Put Your Intentions Into Writing With A Parenting Plan

When you and the other parent start working toward a stable solution after splitting up, a parenting plan can be a great way to set some ground rules. These outline the rights and responsibilities of each parent, and they are legally binding.

Parenting plans can include a wide variety of important topics, such as religious upbringing and vital healthcare decisions. If you and the other parent can come together to make choices for your family, this can be a leg up.
