Oklahoma City Fathers' Rights Attorney

Committed to Protecting the Rights of Oklahoma Fathers 


Family courts have become increasingly progressive in terms of fathers' rights. That's good news for men who want increased visitation rights, custody, and physical placement of their children. Gender is not the basis of good parenting, and it's important for men to understand that they have the same rights as women with regards to minor children. That’s why it's imperative to work with an attorney that strongly advocates for the rights of men. At Burr Law Offices, PLLC, our Oklahoma City fathers' rights lawyer believes in the positive role that good dads play and will fight to protect your rights and interests.

Establishing Paternity in Oklahoma City

When a child is born outside the bonds of marriage, you must establish your paternal rights. In Oklahoma, men can sign what is known as an “acknowledgement of paternity” that presumes you are the biological father. 

Unfortunately, a document that establishes paternity will not provide you with the legally enforceable rights of custody and visitation—although it may make child support payments mandatory. In other words, the form’s acknowledgment puts you on the hook for financial responsibility without the benefits of a parent-child relationship. It’s in your best interests to petition for established parental rights by proving via a DNA test that you are the father.

Common Paternity Problems Men Face

Fathers face a variety of problems, including: 

  • Custody
  • Visitation 
  • Child support 
  • Getting access to medical and school records 
  • Many other unique issues

Another paternity problem some men face is children born to mothers who have not legally dissolved a previous marriage. Whether the marriage remained on the books out of religious convictions or divorce seemed unnecessary, given a lengthy estrangement does not matter. The husband in the legal marriage is presumed the father unless you take steps to assert your paternity rights. The process for establishing paternity can be complex, but an experienced fathers' rights attorney can help you negotiate the bureaucracy and hearings.

Understanding your  Rights as a Father 

The movement to balance fathers, rights has gained considerable momentum, and you should not assume you are at a distinct legal advantage in a family law matter. Many dads have chosen to assume the role of primary caregiver and homemakers in today's society. 

In cases of divorce, foregoing career opportunities must be considered in instances of divorce. This means that the mother automatically being given child custody or receiving child support or alimony is not the case.
