New Hampshire fathers rights are protected by the laws of the state. These relate to paternity, custody and child support.
Paternity: You have the right to seek to establish paternity of any child you believe may be yours. If tests show that you are the father, you will have equal legal rights in all issues related to the child including whether or not it should be placed for adoption.
Custody: You have the right to seek custody of your children. Custody may be sole custody, joint custody or legal custody protecting your right to consistent, ongoing visitation with your kids. Any type of custody protects your right to be involved in important decisions regarding your childrens education, religious upbringing, participation in activities such as sports or music and their medical care if needed.
Child Support: Your fathers rights in New Hampshire give you the right to seek child support from the childs mother. The court will do a financial analysis and determine the level of child support, if any. Many New Hampshire fathers receive child support when they have sole or joint custody of the children.
