Fathers should exercise their legal rights appropriately

In our previous blog post, we discussed how a father's rights are limited before the baby is born. Sadly, this means that fathers might not be able to have a part in the decisions that they want to have. In some cases, they might not even be able to know anything about the baby or how the pregnancy is going. We know that many fathers want to play a primary role in their child's life. We can help fathers learn about the options they have to do this.

Father's rights are limited before birth

You found out that your girlfriend or wife is pregnant. That good news can be quickly overshadowed if you and she disagree with aspects of her prenatal care or care for the fetus before birth. For fathers, the pregnancy period is largely one during which they have to sit back and allow the woman to make the decisions about what is going to happen.

Know your rights for seeking compensation

Being involved in an accident that isn't your fault is something that is hard to cope with. If your injuries are severe, such as if you suffer a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury, you might find that you aren't able to work. That can lead to financial difficulties that you didn't have time to plan for.

Your rights can have an effect on your defense against charges

In a post a few weeks ago, we discussed some of the rights that you have when you are dealing with the police. These rights are important because if they aren't followed, there is a chance that we can use that information in your defense. This is one reason why it is vitally important for you to pay close attention to what happens when you are with the police.
