What Are Fathers' Rights?

Fathers' rights are the legal rights of a father to spend time with and make decisions for his children. These rights are protected under the law, and it is important for fathers to understand what they are and how to protect them.

Some of the most common fathers' rights include:

  • Right to custody: Fathers have the right to seek custody of their children. This can be done through a custody agreement or by going to court.
  • Right to visitation: If a father does not have custody of his children, he still has the right to spend time with them. This is typically done through a visitation schedule.
  • Right to make decisions: Fathers have the right to make decisions for their children. This includes decisions about their education, healthcare, and religious upbringing.
  • Right to support: Fathers have the right to seek child support from the mother of their children. They also have the right to fight against paying more than they can afford.

It is important to note that, in South Carolina, the law does not favor one parent over the other when it comes to custody. Instead, the court will make a decision based on what is in the best interests of the child. This means that, as a father, you have just as much of a chance of being awarded custody as the mother does.
