When this occurs, it’s important you seek the help of an experienced Cleveland non-married parent lawyer.

Common Legal Issues for Non-Married Parents

Non-married parents who end up needing to resolve legal issues are usually subject to the same processes as married parents. However, since they never married, the path to resolving this issue is different.

Our Cleveland non-married parent lawyer can help our clients resolve the following issues:

  1. Paternity: When a child is born to unmarried parents, the mother is assumed to be the parent to the child, but the father must either voluntarily sign a form stating his paternity or go through a court proceeding to prove he is the father. Whether you are a father or mother looking to establish the paternity of your child, our attorney can help.
  2. Parental Rights & Responsibilities: At birth, an unmarried mother is the sole parent and legal custodian of a child. The mother has the right to make all the decisions for the child. Either parent can petition the court for an allocation of parental rights and responsibilities. The court will then determine the rights of both parents and allocate the decision-making authority for the child unless the parents can reach an agreement.
  3. Child Support: The parent at whose house the child spends the majority if the time may wish to establish a court ordered child support agreement to ensure the other parent is holding up their end of the financial responsibility.
  4. Past Care Expenses: If you are the parent with primary custody of your child and were solely responsible for paying for a medical bill or another significant charge, you can seek reimbursement by receiving a court order.
