Establishing Paternity Is Crucial
These cases can be notoriously complex. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that you have options. An important first step in any case is establishing paternity. In Minnesota, the biological father doesn’t immediately have any custodial rights. However, you may petition for rights of parenting time or custody once you’ve proven you are the father. The process then continues as any other custody case would. That doesn’t always mean it is easy, though.
The court will look at several factors when determining whether to award custody. The top priority is always the best interest of the child. After that, a judge will look at what makes the most sense for the child, the ability of each parent to care for the child, their finances and their living arrangements. It’s important to represent yourself the best way that you can, which is where an experienced lawyer can help. We will do everything we can to help you through your case.
