Paternity Rights Lawyers

Divorce Lawyer in EdinburghAs a network of paternity rights lawyers, we are guided by the children’s act 1989 as far as Parental Responsibility is concerned. By law, a parent of a child has in relation to the child and their property all the rights, powers, duties, responsibilities and authority to that child. As expert solicitors in family law, we appreciate the complexity and sensitive nature of these cases and are on hand to offer real expert advice to anyone who may seek it.

Paternity rights lawyers – Who has them?

As a network of family lawyers with dedicated paternity rights la, yers we can offer advice on all things associated with family law. For example during a divorce questions are always asked as to who has parental rights over a child, this includes having the power to make decisions on the upbringing of that child, including their religion, education and healthcare. Parental Rights are legally distinct from being recognised as a child’s mother or father.

The mother of the child automatically has the parental rights whilst the father doesn’t automatically have these rights unless he is married to the mother, he obtains parental rights, or if he is named on the birth certificate.

Where this is not the case with, fathers, step-parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles they can apply to court to be granted parental rights. As paternity rights lawyers, we will always make sure the interests of the child are always honoured as the court will see this as the most important factor in any application.
