Helping Little Rock Fathers Establish Parental Rights

Arkansas has a unique law impacting fathers' rights to relationships with their children. Under the law, when a child is born to unmarried parents, custody belongs solely to the mother until the paternity of the father is recognized by a court. In order for a father's rights to be recognized, someone must file a complaint with the court to establish paternity. Without recognition from the court, the father has no right to a relationship with his child.

Walking You Through The Arkansas Paternity Process

As experienced family law attorneys at the Law Office Vickie Lynn Cochran, we have a great deal of experience representing fathers in these matters.

By pursuing a paternity action, we can help you take the necessary steps to establish that you are the child's father and obtain full parental rights, including a fair child custody and visitation order. This process also results in the establishment of a child support order if one does not already exist.

A father's relationship with his children is at stake in these cases, and it is important that you have strong legal representation from a Little Rock fathers' rights lawyer who will get the job done right the first time.
