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.
