Ohio Parental Rights Lawyers
Understanding Your Rights as a Mother, Father, or Step Parent
At the law office of King, Koligian & Associates, LLC, we offer legal services to support families. We represent mothers, fathers, and step parents in various legal matters that affect the lives of children: child custody, visitation, child support, and adoptions.
To find out more about your parental rights, schedule a consultation with an attorney from our law office.
A father who is not married to the mother of his child does not have parental rights unless they are established. It is important to address this matter early in the child's life, avoiding waiting until years have passed when the legal process may be more complex for a variety of reasons. Establishing child custody or visitation rights is most expensive in a contentious situation.
If you are in a position where you are considering giving up your parental rights to your child, talk to someone first. It is important to understand exactly what you are agreeing to before you permanently sever legal ties with your child.
Step Parent Adoptions
A step parent adoption is when a minor child is adopted by the spouse of the custodial parent. To be eligible for a step parent adoption, the petitioner must be married to the parent, and the child living with them for a minimum of six months. There are additional requirements for a step parent adoption. Contact our firm for more information.
