NLSP LogoA father's rights are essentially the same as a mother's but sometimes men have difficulty exercising all their parental rights.

Disputes over paternity, child support and custody can interfere with a dad's ability to play a full role in his children's life.

This program is made possible thanks to our partnership with Neighborhood Legal Services Program.
