Mother’s Rights Attorney in Pasadena

Protecting a Mother’s Rights in California

Mother’s rights deserve to be protected and at the Law Offices of Christopher L. Hoglin, P.C., we work tirelessly to help ensure that our clients are able to obtain a favorable resolution to their child custody case.

Most mothers assume that a court will automatically turn custody of their children over to them in a divorce, however, that is not always the case. There may be circumstances where a father may fight to obtain physical or legal custody of a child.


At the Law Offices of Christopher L. Hoglin, P.C., our Pasadena mother’s rights attorneys can help protect your rights and fully represent you during a child custody hearing. Don't hesitate to contact our office today.


What Are My Legal Rights as a Mother in California?

When it comes to rights, it's important to remember that custody rights aren't automatically awarded to a mother because of gender. The father also has equal rights as long as he has established paternity. If paternity has been proven, then both parents have the right to file for custody, visitation, and child support.

What are the Rights of an Unwed Mother?

A mother who is not married automatically receives full legal and physical custody of her child, meaning she has the right to make any and all decisions regarding her child, such as education, medical care, religion, living arrangements, etc. However, an unwed mother also has no right to child support from the father until paternity is established.
